This elementary-school-level deliberation activity asks the following question: Should elementary students be required to do homework?

It includes a deliberation reading and glossary.

Note: This is an elementary-school-level resource (reading level grade 5.0-7.5).


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.
