Here are some interesting sites that I’ve found this week, thanks to my PLN.

Join the Debates  “PBS Education has partnered with EXPLO and the Commission on Presidential Debates to create the enclosed debate tool kit for classroom use.

By listening, sharing, questioning, and reflecting, students develop skills critical to becoming thoughtful, responsible citizens. Feel feel to download the debate guide along with the corresponding Join the Debates poster and Presidents poster for display in your classroom.”
