Brushing our teeth .mp4
Argumentation Shark 1.mp4

Argumentation Station

This episode shows how my class are using Argumentation Boards to drive our Literacy Programme. At the moment we are are gathering our own information and evidence to support our thinking about a provocation. This requires the students to use a scaffold that supports their thinking. (See below). Each week the provocation changes as we discuss a new topic or issue.

In this episode you will see two provocations;

1. Should we make it compulsory to brush our teeth at school?

2. Should we be culling sharks?
