Wood writes that in a problem-based learning lesson on racism, in which high-school students studied U.S. Supreme Court decisions and texts about affirmative-action programs, he modeled a collaborative debating style called Interest-Based Negotiation to help students argue the issues without trying to "win" the debate. "In short, it centers around people of different positions working together instead of against each other," he writes.
