Once a week, you will meet with your group for one hour to discuss the reading. You have the option of conducting your Group Discussions via Blackboard Collaborate during the class day/time, on Thursdays from 11:00am-12:00pm, by following your Group’s link below. You may also conduct your discussion independently of the class time and using another video conferencing tool (such as Google or Zoom), should another setup be more convenient for your group.
To provide some minimal structure, you are required to come to the meeting with one discussion question to contribute to the group. The discussion question should isolate a theme, passage, or something else that you find interesting from the week’s reading, and frame your interest in a way that invites discussion. Instructions and samples are below.
I will be reviewing the Group Discussion notes on a weekly basis, and at the end of the semester, I will distribute an evaluation form for you to evaluate your group members on their participation. This is to ensure that participation is for the most part equitable (since I cannot be there in person to moderate).
