Students will write a persuasive essay about their (fact-supported) stance on animal testing. Students will choose a for or against viewpoint and students will participate in an organized debate at the end of the writing. For a challenge, you can assign the students’ viewpoint in which they must persuade readers to think. This may help you when you set up the debate so there are even sides.
