World Cup Debate activity - analytical/evaluative classroom activity

Continuing our World Cup theme, here's a Powerpoint activity that we've used before but have updated and altered slightly.  The World Cup Debate activity is a fun resource that is aimed at stimulating analytical and evaluative discussion with your A level students as they finish their studies for Year 12.

Students are set a discussion topic - in this case it is 'What is the best way to make the NHS more effective?'  The question is deliberately open-ended to allow for maximum debate.  Students are given 8 possible solutions and must decide which of these is 'best'.  However, the solutions are categorised into 8 'quarter-finals' and students must decide which solution wins the individual debate.  The winners of the quarter finals go on to the semi-finals, and winning semi-finalists go on to the final.

Teachers can run the activity as a whole class debate or allow individuals (or small groups) to take the lead on some of the solutions.

Note:  Teachers can alter the discussion topic and/or solutions by editing the table on slide 1 of this Powerpoint file.
