Middle Age (49-145) Harkness Discussion

1. How did we support quieter people during the discussion?
Like the last discussion we asked the quieter people things like “what are your thoughts on this” and “do you have anything to say”

2. How did we support the more talkative people in the group?
We kind of just let them talk and voice their opinion but reminded them that others might want to talk or we just interrupted them. We also made them moderators so we used their questions and what they said as kind of a guide point. 

3. What is the time stamp of our best moment of discussion, and why?
0:30, when we are all talking, debating and discussing about what we found interesting in the book.

4. What is our main goal for our next discussion?
Not to get distracted by random squeaks and to encourage the quieter people to talk more. And maybe to start the conversation faster and to not leave blank spaces of silence when we are discussing something,

Youth (0-6) Harkness Disscussion

This is our first discussion on the Youth Section:

Reflection Questions:

1. How did we support quieter people during the discussion?
We mostly were like “do you want to say something” or “ what are your thoughts about _____”. The people who were quiet would also indicated that they wanted to speak making it easier for us to understand if they wanted to speak. 

2. How did we support the more talkative people in the group?
We agreed with them and let them say their point. We also motioned to them that others might want to talk and they wrapped up their statement. 

3. What is the timestamp of our best moment of discussion, and why?
At about a minute or two in when we started to agree and have a good conversation including everyone about why the embryos were implanted in cows. 

4. What is our main goal for our next discussion?

Our main goal is to let the quieter people talk more and encourage the louder ones to say what they need to say in shorter sentences. We also might want to get our into done sooner. You probably couldn’t see but we took like 3 minutes to start the conversation.
