This is a set of resources with a common aim - to encourage discussion in a constructive and focussed manner.
The Discussion points resource is designed to encourage purposeful talk by giving a focus for a discussion- topics are taken from Daily Tutor Time (c) such as should the British government apologise for actions of past governments (which may have been acceptable at the time?)’.
Moral dilemmas asks students how they would respond to a range of situations so it also encourages students to reflect on their values and behaviour.
In Top 3's there are categories such as tennis players and, in their group, they have to come up a top three.
Not only does this boost discussion and team work but it makes them think about values- what criteria are they going to use?
All three are ideal for promoting discussion and tolerance of different views.
