I really like this idea. It is so simple to implement, but has the potential to be very powerful. Have you had the opportunity to try this in your class at any point? I wonder if they could add some creativity to the mix by allowing students to create video to capture their thoughts and feelings?
Denise, I really like the idea of getting students to work with other students. I'm also a big fan of developing student leaders in non-traditional areas. Have you thought about how you would work with these students and what sort of training they would receive in order to work with the other students? If you need any help talking this through let me know.
