Room for Debate

20 Jan

A colleague pointed me to the ‘Room for Debate‘ columns in the New York Times and I am completely taken by the concept.  I love the idea of picking a topical issue, having source material from different perspectives, and then inviting students to weigh in with their own views.  Not only would this be a valuable activity when I take on my new debating team later this year, but it will be an interesting way of building the field for concept and issues studies in the English classroom.
