Children are not things to be moulded, but people to be unfolded.

Debate - Summative Assessment

My Own Voice

Debate is an excellent engagement for language learning because it engages learners in a variety of cognitive and linguistic ways.  It helps them gather information about topics they might not know a lot about. This strategy provides opportunities for all the learners to participate in discussions to develop listening and speaking skills. PYP 3 learners came up with different issues locally and globally and after discussing various issues they finally concluded to debate on Demonetization.
