Responses to 3 Questions
Work with your small group partners to provide brief responses (can be submitted as bullet points, brief answers, or notes) to the three queries below. All members should view the films individually prior to collaboration begins.
Read the organizational and â€œframingâ€ discoveries of your teammatesâ€™ Monday posts for new and additional insights into the change story told by your film and discussions. Note what you believe is particularly insightful.
Collate the best elements of your film responses. Use a collaborative tool to create a â€œone voiceâ€ summary document that captures the key organizational change elements of your film discovered in the â€œAs You View the Film â€“ Information Gatheringâ€ discussion board.
Your summary may take any form agreed upon by your group, but make sure the categories and questions are from the â€œAs You View the Film â€“ Information Gatheringâ€ discussion board are adequately addressed.
For example, you may choose to simply share the most critical or thoughtful elements of the responses to each answer in the printed form.
You may decide to bulletize responses for some answers, use quotes and narration directly from the film, find graphics online, or create another presentation with color and diagrams or pictures.
