+Constructive Disagreement

Seeking Disconfirmation

Exercises like these help students challenge their own thinking and guide them down a pathway of a deeper understanding of why they and others think the way they do. The focus can then shift from “blaming to aiming.” Individuals with opposing perspectives can thus have shared goals and work together on solutions -- as small as individual conflict resolution and as big as a global crisis. These exercises can be adapted to fit any number of classes, learning needs, and student ages.
