Teaching Methods Citizen ChoiceWork Guide

Are the 'tried and true' teaching methods that we grew up with the best way to help today's kids learn, or are there new, innovative approaches that work better? This Citizen ChoiceWork Guide (and video) takes a look at two school districts that use different teaching methods in their schools.

Based on decades of research and experience concerning how average citizens think and talk about issues, Public Agenda's Choicework dialogue materials are designed to help groups and communities talk productively about public problems. Choicework dialogue materials present alternative perspectives on an issue, highlighting the pros, cons and tradeoffs of going down different paths. They use everyday language, not professional jargon, and focus on the kinds of concerns and values that non-experts can readily engage.
