When I was a teacher, I always devoted some lesson time to what was going on in the news. I thought, and think, that one has to do that in order to keep the subject relevant.
Here are two topics that came up recently, and which are capable of being discussed by both primary and secondary pupils, with the appropriate adjustments in language of course.
These discussion topics were first published, along with several others, in the July 2016 issue of Digital Education, which is a free newsletter. You can sign up to it here if you wish: Newsletters.
