Announcing, the Eracism Project 2012-2 - a global student debate that joins diverse cultures and includes authentic debate for global competence and international mindedness.
Schools selected for the Eracism Project 2012-2 will be asked to enter a 4 person debate team, with the remaining students in the class being researchers around the topic.....
"Global management of natural resources will cause conflict between cultures"
The initial debates will be held asynchronously but in what organizers are calling a "simulated synchronous" environment with the final winning teams debating live in a virtual world. This project was first carried out in 2009 and is being run again starting in October 2012, concluding at the end of November 2012. A limited number of applications will be taken.
We welcome applications NOW from teachers and their classrooms around the world. We also need judges and volunteers to help with debate coaching. To apply for this project as a class or judge or volunteer or request to be involved in the teacher information meeting, please complete this form.
Classrooms in Upper Primary, Middle and High School are encouraged to apply (students of age 11 and above). Organizers will create two strands in this project based on demand.
Application deadline is September 24, 2012, with announcement of project classrooms by Friday September 28, 2012.
