I decided, in a fit of NQT enthusiasm, to run a debate for Y8 after half term. And I am now slightly stuck and slightly regretting it!
I've got two lessons to prep it, on climate change - a topic they have been taught for this half term. It's science, but I am going for the ethics side because I think we have taken the actual science side as far as we can with them. So along the lines of - "developed countries should do the most to combat climate change", type of thing. I can get lots of resources for older kids/adults to debate, but I am struggling to see how to set it up so Y8 have something to research etc.
