Reflection: Flexibility The Titanic: Forming an Opinion - Section 4: Sharing our Sides


Although it would be wonderful if magically students equally chose all three factors to write about, I clearly undertand this won’t happen! Because I want students to choose their own opinion and be able to support it, I realize that there will be one factor that will have more supporters than another. And this is fine! I just need to plan for having uneven groups with one – or more – view points being less supported that others. As long as there is one student representing each view in a group, I’ll be happy. Of course, if it so happens that one group doesn’t have a representative of a certain view, I could always jump in and argue it myself!
