Description

Class Experience

Students will learn how to structure their ideas, challenge others respectfully, work as a team, critically analyse and engage with big topics and develop their own beliefs. They will build up to a formal debate and develop confidence and future skills through student-centred learning. There is a focus on understanding key stakeholders and the ways diverse groups will be impacted by big ideas. Students practice respectfully challenging and disagreeing with each other’s ideas, and defending their own opinions through clearly structured and well-reasoned arguments.
