"Doubting, Believing & Sharing"

Activity

Summary

Participants practice believing wholeheartedly in a position, then doubting and critiquing that same position to eventually come to the intersection of perspectives around the issue.

Instructional Strategies

1. Pick a difficult topic around which there is conflict and get everybody ÒbelievingÓ they are right about one side of the problem - absorbing, defending, and adopting the arguments. 2. Then get everyone together ÒdoubtingÓ that same problem - deconstructing and critiquing it. 3. Finally, encourage participants to find the points of intersection between the doubters and believers. 4. Facilitate a discussion and help participants articulate their own position, drawing from the perspectives of both the doubters and believers.
