Reflection: Student Feedback Constructing a Rhetorical Situation - Section 3: Listening with a Critical Lens


As I walked around the room and joined groups, it was evident that the students enjoyed talking about issues.  While a handful did the bullying issue I gave as an example, the rest had unique issues, and a couple had issues that they really plan to present to an audience.  As you will see in my reflections of other parts of the lesson, however, talking about the rhetorical situation and using it for writing a statement turned out to be totally different experiences; while they talked well about situations in theory, acting on the situation was a challenge.
