Want students to discuss current issues from a sociological perspective?
This is a great way to teach perspective, perception, and hear thinking as it occurs! Students come to class with a topic they feel is important, with questions to ask the class, and they facilitate a quick 15 minute group discussion- complete with an introduction and conclusion. This is the page I give students to explain the task. I have other pages that include: scoring sheet for classmates and self assessment and a Topic of the Week facilitator outline/planning sheet that is required.
