Class room discussions is very important to further the education of each and every student. During these class room discussions, it is important that these students reach out of their comfort zone and share their ideas and give their opinions. These discussions are also a great opportunity to learn from one another and listen to everyone’s ideas. It also allows the students to learn without the feeling they are being lectured too.

Classroom discussion is definitely something that can help students out and help them form thier own opinions. Giving students freedom to talk is how they start to get comfortable and learn because it allows them to have thier own opinion but also causes them to hear bothsides of the perspective on the certain topic. Which can cause students to evolve thier own original opinions.

Our classrooms are a reflection of the world around us, and students bring their individual experiences with them. These experiences affect how they perceive the world around them, and how they interpret what they see and hear.

Giving students an opportunity for high level discussions in class not only enriches their discussion with diverse viewpoits and perspectives, but when teachers strategically guide and monitor these discussions, students learn the norms and etiquettes of group discussions. They learn to collaborate in a manner that  is democratic providing everyone with equal opportunities to express their own unique points of view.

Students learn so much by hearing the opinions of others and forming their own opinions.  They learn how to articulate their thoughts and contribute and accept the opinions of others.
