This is a work in progress. The idea is that a number of topics are selected that are relevant to the subject material, beyond the scope of lectures. Students are assigned to groups and then told which side of the debate they are on. Some sides/opinions are more popular but, like a lawyer, the idea is to present the best case/argument possible, independent of their own beliefs.
