Democratic societies thrive on dissent, discussion and debate. Teaching Tolerance’s Civil Discourse in the Classroom provides lessons that offer a way for basic argument literacy to be integrated into any classroom. Students of all ages, backgrounds and skill levels are able to learn the basic tools for argumentation. Once they learn these tools, it becomes easier to build discussion and deliberation into daily classroom activities. Many students also find that practice in structured argument dramatically improves their ability to read and produce persuasive writing.
