Samenvatting:
As much as policy topics like abortion and same-sex marriage elicit spirited reactions from your students, aren't you looking for ways to get them out of their partisan corners? Ellis and Nelson have found that debating concrete proposals for reforming the political system encourages undergraduates to leave ideology behind and instead sift through competing claims and evidence.
