Harkness discussion #2
As part of our novel study, we have just engaged in a second Harkness discussion! Please listen and enjoy. Most of the issues we have addressed are part of the second part of the book, middle age. This time, we had to keep our strategies for success that we used last time, in mind, to ensure a successful discussion. We did our best to make the conversation feel open, so the quieter people in the group felt they could add to our conversation. The more talkative people (I am guilty for this), kind of dominated this conversation. However, we gave others the opportunity to add, before we let the talkative people speak. I would say the best moment of our conversation was the end (Ten minutes), when we were all talking about why Matt was cloned, or in other words, what was he here for? Everyone had great points at this timestamp. I would say our main goal for the next discussion is to silence the more talkative people a bit (I am a bit of a wreck when it comes to this). They silenced the quieter people and dominated the conversation. That's a bit sad if you ask me.
That's all for now, have a great day. We'd love to hear your thoughts too. Keep in mind, spoilers or inappropriate posts will not be posted.
