      Perhaps start the class off with a thought provoking question that the students are asked to respond. Students can then share their responses in a discussion or on a large poster paper. If you have laptops you can have students respond on Padlet, Nearpod, or through Edmodo or any other online learning tool.

        If you want to incorporate current events, you could do a "world leader” game where you could give an event that happened yesterday and ask students how they would respond diplomatically. You could have students group up and argue their point with others. Gives kids argumentative skills, connects them to current events, possible teamwork, and can introduce other solutions to problems other than conflict.
