Does anyone know any sites that would help me conduct a discussion class for both lower level and upper level students. I am looking for interesting topics and questions that will keep the class interested. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

You don't say for what age, you are teaching. Very Happy

For adults Evil or Very Mad I use

Talk Your Head off and Write too.

How indepth you get will depend on the level of your student.

For Children, I use Easy True Stories and More Easy True Stories.

This is what works for me. Now you know.

I think it's kind of hard to find web sites with topics for conversations, but there are a lot of great books. One that I use for my middle school kids is Penny Ur's 'Discussions that Work'. Lots of the discussions are geared for intermediate to high level students so it would probably be a good resource for you.

The english-to-go website has prepared lessons based on Reuter's articles and they usually provoke discussion. You can check it out for free, but there is a membership fee.
