Enhance Your Classroom Discussions With Power League

By casting votes, students create a “league,” ranked in order of the most powerful, important or influential—and the results of the vote is often surprising, which makes an excellent point for discussion.

Although Power League was originally designed as a playful way to explore the nature of power, the creators have adapted the application so that students can vote on any subject: which is the bigger cause of global warming, for example; or which is the more important invention?
