  7. 7.  This presentation is purposely minimal in terms of text use as the images, videos, and links serve only as points of departure for dialogic explorations of the topic. Students have previewed these and additional related materials (one of the four topics per student) and prepared brief essays summarizing the particular practice and of their personal responses to reference during in-class discussion. Questions have been deliberately omitted so as not to unintentionally narrow the range of dialogue possibilities and allow instructors the flexibility to formulate questions deemed most useful in their classes.
