How I Use It
This web site is a great source of knowledge and a starting point for opening up dialog. I have used it primarily for that purpose. It is a companion site to their Magazine which has interesting and informative articles that deal with some of the most controversial subjects of our day. Many of the topics are pulled from the headlines and are relevant to students.
My Take
This site is as useful for creating lesson plans as for use withing a lesson. It addresses controversial subjects in cohesive and comprehensive manner. Students are forced to think about things they don't normally think about. It is not the most engaging site, and most of the content is static.
