Discussion Leadership (Sociology 142D)

Each student is expected to lead one class discussion. A sign-up sheet will be circulated early in the semester. Discussion leaders will be responsible for summarizing and presenting the day’s readings, engaging with the weekly Blackboard responses of other students in the class, and developing discussion questions to provide a launching point for in-class dialogue. In other words, discussion leaders are expected to be active in facilitating participation of all students throughout the class period. Please prepare a short handout to distribute to all members of the class on this day. This will account for 15% of your final grade.
