Weekly Tribes – (Citizenship) Slip Game

This entry has an ‘election day’ theme…but can easily be adapted for any subject or theme.

…With election day approaching, this strategy (slip game) is easily adapted to create awareness, influence opinion, and present/understand the facts.

Have students read or research a candidate, an issue, a proposition or measure, or create a ‘poll’ question.

Then each student writes a question (based on their assignment) on a slip of paper.

Teacher reviews for clarity and appropriateness…and then redistributes questions so that each student is answering, or commenting on, someone else’s question.

You might want to throw in some personal, non-political questions, depending on the student’s age.

Be sure to check with the creator of each question for accurate responses (especially facts).
