Reflection: Trust and Respect Set up Panel Discussion - Section 2: Students Select Character Roles and Thematic Topic


This was really pretty exciting.  The students showed that they were interested in the particular character that they each selected and that they would have the initiative to do the research on the front end so that the panel would go well.  In a sense, the fishbowl discussion was such a high point, I am somewhat concerned that this activity might flatten out a bit rather than really end in a culmination of what the students are able to do, but we will see in the coming episodes.
