We just did two Philosophical Chairs . . . school uniforms & energy drinks - - discussing both sides.  We are also going to do Socratic Seminars which are similar to PC but also very different.  SS is a discussion of a topic within a small group where the members take turn discussing the various points of the topic....agree/disagree; analyzing; & critiquing.

What topic would you like to discuss for each activity?

Example of an answer:
Socratic Seminar - Teens involvement in EcoConservation
Philosophical Chairs - All professional athletes should have a college education.

DUE by Tuesday, May 9, 2011

For both activities, some topics that would be good are about legalizing marijuana, abortion or about school hours (if it should be shortened or school days should decrease)...
