DebateAble Table Volume 3: Freedom of Speech in Schools


Today we're asking kids to think about freedom of speech - what it means and how it applies to them, as students. This is a topic very large in scope that a lot of smart people, from educators and students to politicians and voters, continue to debate, and we tried to narrow it down to make it relatable for kids. In the end, we know that no matter what anyone's opinion might be, there's always more than one side to every issue. Every perspective has value. And everyone has a seat at the table.

The DebateAble Table Newsletter includes all the content you need for your debate at home. No experience necessary. Just print the attached documents, pass them to your young debaters and follow along. Our aim is to promote dinnertime debates with your family and anyone else who shares your table, literally and virtually!

1. Freedom of Speech In Schools
2. Questions to Consider: Freedom of Speech
3. Activity: Walk Out Protests. A Form of Speech?

We hope DebateAble's weekly at-home discussions
• inspire each of us to think critically about the information we take in
• consider perspectives other than our own
• value ourselves as listeners and speakers, and
• develop confidence to engage with each other.
