I want my students to talk as much as possible while still remaining engaged in the class.
This is a great list of discussion questions that can be used over the course of 2 days or 1.
I think that it works best if you pick the questions that you want and go over like 10 of them in class. I also like to have the students work and discuss with each other. This is just a big list of good opinion and fact based questions from the time period.
Have fun with it.
