Cooperative Controversies in the Classroom.
Bredehoft, David J.
College Teaching, v39 n3 p122-25 Sum 1991
In the cooperative controversy technique, two opposing sides are clearly drawn over a single issue, and learners on both sides cooperate to understand both sides and arrive at a personal position. Students respond enthusiastically to the exercise, are helped in exploring emotional responses to issues, and learn how, not what, to think. (MSE)
