This is an activity in which students role-play and present arguments to decide the fate of a fictional town’s only bay. The debate is intended to stimulate each participant to delve deeply into the facts of the issue and develop articulate and persuasive ways of presenting the information. At the end of this activity students will be able to identify and discuss the problems associated with sound management of coastal resources. The site has all of the information required for the activity including roleplaying assignments, point of view cards, and a rubric for grading the activity.
