Looking for Discussion Topics?
If you are interested in generating some meaningful discussions in your TAG class, I've found this potential site.  It's published by the New York Times and created by the Learning Network. It is an American site; however, I think there are a number of topics that may have relevance in your classroom or may prompt you to come up with new questions.  
Clicking on each question takes you directly to an article written about the issue.
