Framingham Middle Students Debate Erosion-Control Efforts on Nantucket

Coastal erosion on Nantucket beaches was the topic of a research and debate project undertaken by sixth grade language arts students at Fuller Middle School in Framingham, Massachusetts  Under the direction of their teacher, Anne Doucet, the students examined the NCC website, as well as other perspectives, and formulated arguments for and against using technology to slow down coastal erosion. After the debate, students wrote argument essays on the topic. The students became quite interested in this issue, and several asked to be kept updated on the latest developments.
