Each group of 6 or 7 students discussed the question for 10 minutes (I used a timer) and were encouraged to use examples from the novel and the real world to support their points. The students not in the community of inquiry sat on the outside and took notes in a Google doc
Thank you for sharing Bianca. I really like how you build this up over time. I always liked the Hot Seat activity, but this sounds a lot more focused … conceptual.
