Participants discuss a controversial question, one row representing pro-arguments, one row representing contra-arguments. The participants sit in two rows, facing each other, after a pro-argument there is always a contra argument, participants may always say just one argument at once. In the middle of the discussion positions are switched. Steps and details are described in the activity plan and the activity overview. This activity can be realized as well with older participants and adults. Important is to choose a relevant controversial question.
