Conversations with Strangers
Improve your public speaking, cultural awareness, and critical thinking skills
Step 1: Participants Write a Question
This can be any question, but it’s best if it’s not easy to answer with a simple “Yes” or “No”
Step 2: The Group Chooses Which Question to Start With
Discussions last approximately 1 hour, it’s never easy to predict which question we’ll start with or the direction that question will lead us.
Step 3: Reflecting on the Discussion
Finally, after the discussion has ended it’s important to think about the opinions that were brought up – finding your own meaning and value inside of what was shared.
