Afghanistan Peace Conference
What should we do about Afghanistan two decades after the U.S. invasion?
This conference is meant for later in the year when students can do more independent work. I put them in groups, give them a list of sources, and they need to create their own five-day learning calendar. The conference is on Day 6. My current group is pretty high-skilled, so most teachers might need to eliminate a few sources to do the work in a week or so. During the actual conference, each group presents their recommendations, about one minute each, then we do a Q&A session, and then we attempt to reach a consensus. I don't try to force a weak consensus since the goal is to show the complexity of this topic and not the ease of a solution. Contact me if you have more questions!
