Hold a "Town Hall Meeting" on an Issue

When introducing a new topic, tell students you will conduct the class session like a “town hall meeting,” with different speakers on the topic. The teacher should turn over the speaker role to a volunteer, who speaks for a few minutes on the issue, and then selects the next speaker on the topic from volunteers. This can go on for several speakers or until volunteers run out.

 

This creates a more student-centered class and gives a variety of students the chance to speak as well as hear a variety of opinions on the topic.
