Assignment: Debate, Roundtable Discussion, or Academic Essay
A new country is being formed, and the government is deciding whether to ban pop culture icons from the country in order to protect their culture and promote their own products (movies, candy, art, actors, sodas, etc.). Decide whether you are for or against this idea, and hold a debate on the good points and bad points of allowing other countries’ pop culture into their own. Make sure you support your ideas and opinions with support, and remember to follow the debate structure, as well as other speaking points learned throughout the textbook. Either the teacher or one student (or both) can be chosen as moderator.
