Interview with Kimberly Sanchez: Argument in the Digital Age

Each mission in my new book, Hacking Digital Learning Strategies: 10 Ways to Launch EdTech Missions in Your Classroom, shares an example of the Mission in Action by a teacher I admire. When I was writing the Mission: Debate the Issues, Don’t Diss People, I asked my younger sister, Kimberly Sanchez, to share her school’s project, The Great Debate.

They researched the issues, fact checked, created raps for the candidates, analyzed statistics, and debated with each other.
