It Took Me Six Days To Work This Out
It took me six days to work this out, however, I should have known all along. It is very difficult to engage Chinese students in debate where they freely offer their opinion or even argue against mine. However give them the same question, a piece of paper, colourful pens, the chance to work in a group, and the looming threat of ever group having to pitch their ideas from the front of the class … and the classroom dynamic changes in an instant. It becomes something competitive. And it becomes something fun. On this day, they engaged. They were thinking. And they were raucous. All time.
Talk soon. Jason.
