eNotes Homework Help: October Discussion Starters

Our Homework Help service helps students and teachers on their toughest academic questions. Our Educators have answered more than 300,000 questions–some straightforward with decidedly black/white answers, and others more open to interpretation and, consequently, discussion.

Each month we’re compiling some of our favorite Homework Help questions to initiate debate or rich conversation in your classroom. Enjoy!

  1. Why is the word “perspective” important to historians?
  2. What is the difference between irony and humor?
  3. How might low voter registration/turnout affect democracy?
  4. Does war protect or threaten freedom?
  5. What are some words that have had a traditional meaning but have been redefined by more recent culture?
  6. Have Hollywood teenage movies had a cultural impact internationally? If so, how have they led certain groups of society astray?
  7. Is science a boon or a curse for humankind?
