Discussions follow one of five formats, each asking students to move from one side of the room or the other to make their position clear: teachers should then use questioning to foster a debate between students, encouraging them to present reasons for their choice and defend their position.
The formats are:
-Agree or Disagree?
-Which parallel dimension would you go to?
-Which of the two laws would you put in place?
-Which job would you prefer?
-Which is better?
