Weaving Debate into the Writing Process | Edutopia

Weaving Debate into the Writing Process | Edutopia | AdLit | Scoop.it

By Ashley Prophet

Summary by the Accomplished Teacher

 

"While teachers and students can be hesitant to integrate debate into the writing process, Ashley Prophet, a graduate student, suggests a nontraditional approach that could alleviate fears over tedious debates and rowdy students. Prophet suggests a five-step process in which students seek critical reviews from their friends, adopt an approach in which students prosecute and defend their sentences, and finally use technology to publish their work."
