Healthcare can be a confusing issue – one with economic, medical, and social dimensions. What should the government’s role be in providing healthcare? How can we best keep our country healthy? In this lesson, students will have a chance to discuss their own beliefs about our healthcare system.
Students will have learned:
- Collaboration: students will work together and learn from each other through discussion.
- Civil conversation and conflict resolution: students will learn how to listen, understand and respect one another’s views, especially when there are differences of opinion and background.
- Research and analysis: students will have a deeper understanding of different perspectives (including their own, their classmates, and the country at large) through researching and discussing.
