What steps should you follow when having a collaborative discussion?

Follow these steps to have a collaborative discussion:

Step 1

Make sure you know everyone's name.


Step 2

Set some goals for your discussion.

We're supposed to describe all of the conflicts in "Thank You, M'am."

Step 3

Listen closely to the first person who talks about the story.

Step 4

Think about what that person said. Then, add your own ideas.

Miss Jones does seem unsure what to do with Roger at first. I wonder if she figured it out while dragging him home.

Step 5

As everyone adds their ideas, think about what they have in common.

We all agree that Roger seems to have more of an internal conflict than Miss Jones.
