FCS 3240: Ind. & Fam. Development

Debate Assignment


You will be placed in a small group, assigned a debate topic and a pro or a con stance to support.  Although there are many potential topics for discussion in this field of study, the topics chosen by the instructor have been carefully selected and scheduled to correspond with course delivery, to apply course information, and to avoid repetition between class members and other sections of this course.  The topic you present should be relevant to the course content at your scheduled presentation date.

See the full assignment from Professor Copeland for all the details. Ask if you have questions about the requirements/expectations.
