The toolkit guides you through a variety of activities you can use to structure and encourage discussion in the classroom. It focuses on discussion, rather than debate, although many of the activities will work equally well for both. The first two pages offer a blurb about why talk is important with a bit of a PSHE focus. There are also lots of website links if you want to follow ideas further. enjoy!
