Classroom Debate Project Expanding Rapidly
The goal of the Newark Public Schools 3 year strategic plan is to engage all students in active, discourse-based instruction. NDA has launched an ambitious initiative to help accomplish this goal. More than 600 elementary and middle school students will participate in classroom debates in their language arts, science social studies and math class. These classroom debates will occur in 11 schools and 27 classrooms during the 2016-2017 school year, more than triple the number from the previous school year.
