In the past few classes, we have started to discuss our annotated readings in class. I appreciate this approach because it helps me synthesize different sources of information and apply them to different articles I’ve read, movies I’ve watched or real-life events I’ve seen on the news. I also think we could incorporate watching or discussing videos with dystopian elements. A few weeks ago, we watched a Youtube video about seemingly happy families and then we discussed the dystopian elements it contained. I think that helps to enhance our learning and understanding of dystopia.
I think we should continue to do work on the whiteboards because I like getting up and moving to different groups to discuss various topics. I also think that the whiteboards are just a nice departure from regular class discussions.
