150 Questions to Write or Talk About - NYTimes.com - 30 views

  • For almost two years now, we’ve posted a fresh Student Opinion question every weekday.

    Each question was originally inspired by something in that week’s New York Times, and all of them are still open to comment by anyone between the ages of 13 and 25.

    Teachers tell us they use them as “bell-ringers,” as inspiration for lessons, as jumping-off points for student research and journalism, or just to help students practice writing persuasively and responding to others around the world. (We don’t allow last names, and we read each and every comment ourselves before we make it public, so it’s a pretty civil, and safe, place to post.)

    I love this-- sample "pinwheel discussion" to analyze literature. I think the teacher's role of making tally marks to show them where they are doing well is key.
