During the Panel Debate we were assigned one of six famous Loyalists or Patriots. My group and I were Benjamin Franklin, a Patriot. (Which means he wanted independence) We had one actor who was Benjamin Franklin that means that he would sit in a chair and ask some questions to Jonathon Boucher's actor. We had to have a panel debate with Jonathon Boucher. In that debate we had a thirty second introductory statement that described who Benjamin Franklin was, what his jobs were, and his opinions on independence. That was said by a different member of the group. Then we asked Jonathon Boucher a question, he answered, then he asked us a question, then we answered. The same thing went on until each of us asked three questions. While the question asking and answering was going on the costume designers were video taping. The other members would stand behind the actor and would talk together about what to say when we answered the questions that Jonathon Boucher asked.
Write something good and bad about each of these subjects.
2. Our Answers- I think that both groups had very good questions and answers. We had answers that we found in the book and they all made sense. But, I think that we could have had more descriptive answers.
3.Our Preparation- I think that before the actual debate my group did an amazing job with the papers and the questions. But, I think that the day of the debate we did poorly on getting straight to the debate.
4.Our Behavior- I think that we had great behavior during the debate because no one was being mean about the questions. No one was being silly either which is important. But I think that we were arguing to much at first and were distracting the other groups.
5. Our final product- I think that we were pretty good during the debate itself. But, I definitely could have been louder and more clearly.
6. Working together- I think that overall working together was the best quality we had. We were always thinking as one and we knew that we would have to work more than just at school so we did some of our work at home and that is very smart and considerate to the other members of the group.
