Round Table

#plenary

For groups > 20-30 students

Why:
This activity ensures that all students have an opportunity to speak if they wish. However, the question posed cannot be a simple yes/no and must have several points or issues that can be raised.

How:

  • Have the class move their desks/chairs into a circle so that everyone can see each other.
  • The discussion facilitator poses a question. Each person, in turn around the circle, provides a comment. - If a student does not wish to comment, they may “pass.”
  • Repeat for a variety of questions.
