Join The Debates

Building Foundations for Civil Discourse

Debate and discussion among students of different backgrounds and beliefs has been a pillar of the EXPLO experience for 40 years.

In 2016, EXPLO launched Join the Debates, a curricular framework that employs EXPLO’s Collaborative Discussion Method, for educators working with students in grades 6 through 12. In cooperation with the Commission on Presidential Debates and in partnership with PBS Education and the National Governors Association, Join the Debates encourages young people to engage in civil conversation on issues important to the U.S. presidential debates and election.
