Activities and Games for the Classroom
Teaching Argumentation: Activities and Games for the Classroom identifies select argumentation skills from the Common Core State Standards (CCSS) and offers F–12 teachers 10 fun, engaging activities and games to teach those skills to students.
Using these activities and games, students will develop the ability to think critically and debate constructively, and will become informed citizens destined for academic and lifetime success.

- access games and activities to support instruction and teach argumentation skills.
- help students develop the critical-thinking skills necessary to lead informed lives.
- provide students with the tools to build effective arguments and relay complex information.
