Harkness Discussion: Empathy or Sympathy


  1. What a great discussion guys. Most people seemed involved and engaged. You guys might need to watch out for it being a question and answer period though. On a scale of 1-5, 1 being a huge question and answer period, to 5 being an actively engaged self directed discussion, I would say you guys are a 3. The conversation was really good, though some people spoke a little too softly. I found your deepest moment of inquiry was when you were talking about Tam Lin, and how he was stuck inside the Alacr谩n estate. Great job guys!

  2. For this group specifically, I rate them a 2 out of 5 on the first question because they didn't really try to make an effort for it to not be just a question an answer. There is soooo much dead air, and if it isn't dead air, then there's someone talking that I can't hear at all. Speak up! Keep the conversation going, this one broke up so much and it was ridiculously hard to listen to. Ms. Groeller, I feel your pain, and now also understand why you made US listen, as opposed to you. The best time stamp (that I could hear, at least), was 6:08, when they talked about whether Celia took care of other Matts.
