The debate unit will be a solo project, but there will be multiple opportunities for students to collaborate and interact with their classmates. It is expected that students engage in collaborative assignments and discussions as part of the unit grade.

The unit is chunked into components, each with its own point value, lessons, rubric, and due date. All information will be posted in Google Classroom.

Please encourage your student to take advantage of “pre-takes” as re-takes will not be offered this quarter.
