Online Collaborative Discussion

A project of EXPLO (Learning Through Exploration), Join the Debates website presents middle school and high school students with an opportunity to promote, drive, and guide a presidential election-style debate while also fully participating in it. Join the Debates provides curricular materials with step-by-step instructions, wide-ranging discussion topics, and advice and suggestions from educators who have successfully used the collaborative discussion method at the heart of the project. Through Join the Debates, students will engage in controversy in a respectful, constructive manner; analyze an argument and follow up with thoughtful questions; and articulate their opinions clearly, confidently, and with evidence. They will improve teamwork skills, leadership skills, negotiation skills, and observation skills. They will also recognize and appreciate inclusivity and develop skills around encouraging others to speak. They will be reflective about both the conversation topic and the format, and point out connections between ideas and opinions expressed within the discussion and the world at large.
