Our Deliberations

We craft engaging, fact-based, and politically balanced deliberations on American political issues. These conversations are hosted on a custom video chat platform specially designed for group conversations. Sign up to hear when more deliberations become available.

Deliberation for Education

Our deliberations are designed to be integrated into both high school and university-level courses in civics, government, and history. The discussions and briefing materials cover policy proposals, historical context, and pro/con arguments concisely and accessibly for students in high school* and beyond.

 

Educators should assign the pre-deliberation survey, which includes the briefing videos and booklet, and post-deliberation survey to be completed as homework. The one-hour deliberation can be completed inside or outside of class.

For assistance integrating our deliberations into your classroom, reach out to us at contact@deliberations.us or (202) 455-6309‬.

*For privacy reasons, those under the age of 13 cannot participate.
