What concerns did both participants share?
In Pairs:
METHOD
#1
The Umbrella Question
Ask a question that tries to raise the discussion above the rhetoric and disagreement, yet keeps the interest of both parties and guides their work together.
Example: As a society that cares about both women and children, how can we best address the issue of unplanned pregnancy?
METHOD #2
How Can We... While at the Same Time? Question
Attempt to link the key concerns of both parties in one question, and demonstrate how the issue can be bridged.
Example: How can we protect the lives of all citizens while at the same time offering a significant enough deterrent to crime?

A topic that is often highly emotional (You have a strong advocacy position, you think your side is right and the other is wrong)
A topic that can be framed in terms of YES or NO
A topic where there is disagreement within the group
A topic you would find exciting to examine today with this group of people
A topic that many people in the group might have personal experiences with
Working to advance a position,
to favor a cause, to push for
change by overcoming another position
Attempt to find common elements of agreement among disputing parties in order to accomplish together what each party cannot do alone.
3. Will both sides come to the table?
Determine where we have controversy
(at least 3 per side)

Reflect: which issues are most meaningful for you?

With the issues left, each person can vote for
TWO
that they are most excited to work on

Narrow down to top two issues
