To Vaccinate or Not

The 7th grade science classes of Anthony Cicenia engaged in wonderful and spirited debates on Thursday (2/19) and Friday (2/20), as part of their unit on bacteria.  Specifically, students explored the question “Should ALL Americans be Vaccinated?”  The students were broken up into groups, researched information and arguments  on both sides of the issue, and then constructed persuasive arguments in debate format. Not only did they learn a whole lot about science, bacteria, and the use of vaccines, but the debates also embraced one of the core learning approaches of IB learners.
