(Look in Blackboard Discussion for info on how to post to Wiki.) ''' Leading Discussions''' - When you lead a discussion on your chapters in class, keep in mind that this is not a presentation, no Power Points, no Prezis. Think as if you were the teacher and you want to discuss readings the students have done. How would you engage them in order to add to their understanding of the readings? Can you connect the readings to other readings/other class assignments/activities? How could the readings be applied to research/teaching/communication, etc.? Hand outs are good, but not required, and feel free to show things from the internet.
