Student Soapbox Activities

 

Student Soapboxes are popular introductory activities that allow students to share their initial feelings, thoughts, perspectives, and experiences before delving into controversial or personal topics. The format provides student choice and allows the teacher to preview and provide feedback on students' replies before they are shared with the rest of the class. Students may choose to solicit questions and rebuttal or leave the soapbox without a reply.
