Reflection: Discourse and Questioning Compare and Contrast Life Cycles - Section 2: How About a Human


Every once in a while a conversation will become interesting and students take a discussion to an uncomfortable place. When this happens I do not add information, but try to move along as best we can with an avoidance to the mentioned items. Sometimes you do not get away from it so easy. So I try to make the information brief and to the point so that we can move along. I really try to not react to what they say in order to make the transition easy.
