Rethinking Whole Class Discussion

There are a lot of ways for approaching whole class discussions (WCDs). Some people find that it is helpful to focus on one specific topic, while others find that they prefer to give feedback on multiple topics. Ultimately, what works best for you is up to you.

One thing that is important to keep in mind is that WCD is an opportunity to have an open and engaged discussion with your classmates. It is important to be clear and concise when you provide feedback and to avoid using any strong language.

If you find that you are struggling to manage WCD, there are a few things that you can do to help. First, you can consider using a facilitator. These can help ensure that all classmates are getting the most out of the experience, and they can also provide support when it is needed. If you find that you are struggling to keep up with the individual contributions of your classmates, you may want to try using a more interactive approach, like role-playing or storytelling.

Ultimately, it is up to you to decide how you want to approach whole class discussions. If you find that you struggle to have an open and engaging discussion, it may be helpful to consider seeking help.
