Discussion-guiding guidelines, LJST 09: On a given day, the three partners who have signed up for that day will collaborate ahead of time on a seven-to-ten-minute, informal presentation of three questions which they feel will be useful in expanding our experience of the assigned text (these can certainly be, and at least in part probably should be, questions for which they do not necessarily have ready answers). From there, as the whole class takes up the questions they have posed, all three partners will remain involved in responding to different arguments offered, questions about the presentation, etc. The actual presentation of the questions and initial discussion should be divided roughly equally between the partners. The presentation will be graded on the basis of the interest, conciseness and novelty of the discussion questions for this course (e.g., do not pose questions that closely resemble ones we have already addressed on a given text, though you may certainly build on such questions), and on the success of the presenters in continuing to lead discussion. (Please note: regardless of which partner presents which questions, responds to which points of discussion, etc., all three partners will receive the same grade.) Partners must also bring a copy of their questions to hand in at the beginning of class.
