Product Description
This pack provides you with everything you need to conduct a Philosophical Chairs-style debate after completing John Steinbeck's Of Mice and Men. Students will debate if The American Dream is alive and well or is it just an illusion. This is a great activity to lead into an essay! This pack provides teacher instructions, rules of engagement, a prep graphic organizer, and a reflection sheet. You can utilize just Steinbeck's novella or bring in other texts to enrich the discussion.

Philosophical Chairs is a powerful discussion strategy that students LOVE. High-levels of engagement and critical thinking come easily when using this strategy. Moreover, students learn to not only defend their opinion with FACTS, but also to be open to diverse viewpoints and multiple perspectives.... and sometimes they even change their mind. :-) This "starter pack" gives you everything you need to start using Philosophical Chairs in your classroom tomorrow! Whether you teach AVID, English, music, drama, math, etc. -- you will not regret trying this strategy.
