D3 and Debate

Today at C:/dags, English teacher Mr. Miller stopped in for a planning session.  The goal was to take an existing structure of his debate preparation unit, and make it more legible and engaging to students using the D3 process.  The various activities and benchmarks for the debate process (from identifying a debate topic, to analyzing claims and couter-claims) were graphically visualized and plotted out along the circular D3 process.  Mr. Miller is currently working on filling in the newly designed handout with expectations and concrete examples.  The project will be implemented in his class in the coming weeks.IMG_20131003_125449_778

The D3 Lab is a collaboration between the Pearson Foundation's New Learning Institute, COMMONstudio design consultancy, and Nightingale Middle School in Los Angeles. It is one part idea lab, one part design and production facility, and one part "do tank." It is a place where students come to nurture and cultivate ideas, tackle big and small problems, and take action.
