04. Masterclass: The Best Way to Get Your Way

Here’s a skill that’s important at any age: how to talk to people who share different opinions than yours. Arguably, it’s a skill we need more of in a time of social media-fuelled division and polarization. Tanya Lloyd Kyi, a beloved guest of the Festival and author of more than 25 books for kids, reveals tips for debating in respectful—and effective—ways. The Best Way to Get Your Way can help kids master exactly how it’s done and shows, through multiple scenarios, how making a smart and logical argument is the way to convince others! Relevant and engaging, Tanya’s work will support young folks looking to be heard—the right way. Grades 4–7.
