Class Discussion Rules • Listen to one another respectfully and attentively (e.g., look at the person who is speaking; don't look bored or uninterested when someone is speaking; don't interrupt, wait until the speaker has finished before asking a question or expressing a view; don't engage in side conversations). • Accept that students will sometimes disagree with others' points of view. Agree to honor them nonetheless. • Avoid using put-downs (even humorous ones). • Consider confidential anything said during discussion. • Be responsible for the quality of the discussion. • Be open to new ideas and free to experiment with new or poorly formed ideas. • Accept that people sometimes make mistakes or are misinformed. • Do not monopolize the discussion. • Speak and listen to others as you would like others to speak and listen to you. • You MUST speak at least 2 well thought-out comments to be graded.
