Town Hall Circle

Source: Facing History and Ourselves

The purpose of town hall meetings is to provide a space for community members to share their perspective on a topic of concern. In this format, different perspectives are often shared as people from different backgrounds and experiences take the floor. This teaching strategy mimics the process of a town hall meeting by providing a structure for different perspectives on a topic to be heard. Students often come away from this experience with a greater appreciation for how our perspective can limit the facts we have at our disposal and the opinions we hold. By listening to others’ ideas, we broaden our understanding of the world in which we live.
