GMO Socratic Smackdown!

Students practiced their debating skills by participating in a Socratic Smackdown on the topic of Genetically Modified Organisms (GMOs)!  In tables of four, students took turns being the "Ref" taking points on discussion strategies and "Verbal Fighter" arguing the benefits and concerns of GMOs.  Students earned points for agreeing/disagreeing, asking questions, connecting classmates' thoughts, playing devil's advocate, and citing evidence/statistics to support their arguments!  Enjoy some sneak peeks below:
