Should voting be compulsory in the United States? This activity includes a deliberation reading and glossary  

Deliberation teaches people how to discuss controversial issues by carefully considering multiple perspectives and searching for consensus. In preparation for deliberations, all participants read common, balanced background information on the issue. During the discourse, they offer arguments for each position on a contested public issue, first drawing from the text and then bringing in their own experiences. 

Note: This is an elementary-school-level resource (reading level grade 5.0-7.5). A middle-school-level version (reading level grade 7.5-9) and a high-school-level version (reading level grade 9.5-11.5) are also available.
