What is a discussion? Where do I find them?

Things to remember when joining a discussion.

Discussions provide an opportunity for teachers and students to Speak Out. Do remember that you are representing not only yourself, but also your school and country.

Discussions can be found on each page by clicking on the discussion tab. Look below for some topics. If you have a suggested topic, click the discussion button on THIS page to add your idea.
  • Use your best writing, no slang. This is not IM, but a discussion. Not every person will be a native English speaker.
  • Disagree courteously.
  • Never insult others.
  • Avoid meaningless comments like "me too" or "I agree", instead add meaningful reasons why!
