With all the hot topics in the news lately, here’s a platform to create a debate. Issues are discussed with reason and backed by data (internet links). All student voices can be “heard.”
Create your own debate topic, even if it’s already been done or join an existing one. The discussion threads are easy to create and easy to follow. Students can sign up with their school Google accounts.
