Castro’s Rule: Classroom Debate and Arbitration Exercise

Classroom Debate and Arbitration Exercise

In this stage, students work with the same student(s) that looked at the same policy, from the same perspective, as themselves. Together, they produce a joint presentation to the rest of the class designed to persuade them that in your policy area Castro was a success or a failure as appropriate. When the presentations are ready, the teacher will invite the two “economics” teams to present their opposing arguments. The rest of the class should take notes and then produce a concluding synthesis statement which draws together the best points from each presentation into a balanced judgement which both sides are happy to accept. Repeat for the other policies.
