Student Response: Average

We are doing a two week series called Blindspots in which we are looking at a couple of areas that, if you aren't paying attention, will cause a collision. In hindsight, the idea of blindspots is probably better suited for high schoolers who already drive...it took me a solid five minutes to explain the whole concept to our students and then to try to apply it as a metaphor for life took additonal effort! Additionally, trying to tackle the subject of absolute truth in 20 minutes was really tough. One thing that has helped us with bigger, tougher topics has been the decision to cut some of the game time in favor of group discussion questions to get them thinking about the topic a little bit ahead of time. This week, we actually had two sets of discussion questions and didn't play any games at all.

Hey Kurt,

Sorry to comment here, but I'm trying to get in touch with Katie Edwards. She did an interview in a book for me and I wanted to give her an update. Can you tell her to email me?
