When talking about opinions, especially with younger students, you need to be sure to choose topics that are appropriate. With adult learners more complex and even controversial topics may lead to interesting discussions. In other classes one question might be “In your opinion what animal makes the best pet? Why?” This may not seem like the most interesting topic to you but it is something that people generally feel very strongly about. It is not a controversial or complex question which makes it suitable for any age level while giving students the chance to practice giving their opinions. Choosing topics that are meaningful to your students will increase their participation in the activity especially when students disagree.
