Class room debates encourage critical thinking

By Silke | Development Consultant

After a successful year, CasaSito opened up the application process for its Teacher Development Program for 2023.

Between January and May 2023, a group of up to 15 teachers from public and private schools will participate in a program on debating techniques that will help them to strengthen their teaching skills and abilities and enable them to awaken their spirit of critical thinking. In addition, the participants will learn about the importance of research on various topics of social interest and the foundation of arguments in reliable sources. The training will culminate with a final debate competition between the participating teachers in May.

As part of the program, the teachers will initiate a debate training program with students of their schools in June that will culminate with a final Debate Festival of all participating schools in October.

Follow-up support will be provided to teachers, including workshops, circles of confidence, psychosocial support and follow-up monitoring, providing a space for the group and facilitate accompanying them during the implementation of the program so that they continue to grow as individuals through self-care and health.
