Power League | Teacher Guide | Introduction - 15 views

  •  
    The league allows students to cast votes, individually, in which they choose between two competing people, ideas or things. In a discussion on climate change, for example, they could vote for which they thought was the bigger cause of global warming: aeroplane emissions or volcanic activity - discuss!

    Each student chooses repeatedly from random pairs. By repeatedly casting votes, the students create a league, ranked in order of the most powerful, important, popular or influential. The results are often unexpected - students are surprised to see how their peers voted - and a good starting point for discussion. Why does this person have more power than another person? What makes this pop star more influential than that politician? How is this power used?
