*******************************************************

Peer pressure is real and all too common! Teens constantly experience all kinds of peer pressure (positive and negative) both in and out of school. Peer pressure can ultimately affect teens’ decision-making, behaviors, emotions, and self-esteem. It’s often hard to navigate difficult situations when dealing with negative peer pressure and hard to take risks when experiencing positive peer pressure.

▶️ PASSAGE TITLE: “Debate Team”

✅ This resource includes ONE full-page reading passage related to Growth Mindset. The passage is in a dialogue form to make it more interesting and relatable. 

✅ To determine whether this passage is suitable for your students, this is what the passage is about:

A male teenage student struggles with presenting/talking in front of an audience. He shows great discomfort in presenting in front of others due to his perceived lack of skills and confidence. His classmate encourages him to join a debate team to improve his speaking and presentation skills. (Positive Peer Pressure)

✅ After students read the passage, they will complete a worksheet that consists of four open-ended questions and support their responses with evidence from the text.

✅ A very detailed Answer Key is provided to help you review the answers and engage your students in meaningful discussions.
