  • At what point should the teacher intervene in a discussion that is full of faulty comments and misconceptions, and more importantly, how should he or she do it tactfully?
  • How has this session on discussion reshaped your ideas of teacher-student roles in the classroom?
  • How would you customize your discussions to account for the clashing personalities in your classroom, or an inconvenient timing of the class period (late in the afternoon, when students are less motivated)?
  • What are your best discussion experiences (as a student or a teacher)? Perhaps you could accompany that memory with Schlect’s suggestions to design a conducive discussion environment.
  •  How could discussions be tailored to accommodate for sensitive topics like politics?
