In R.E.A.L. Time:A Discussion about Discussion
In R.E.A.L.® Time is a place for conversation about the art, science, and impact of student-led discussion. If that mission feels meta, it’s also born of what we see as a concrete need: an exchange focused explicitly on discussion and stocked with a blend of expertise, research, human interest stories, interdisciplinary connections, and fun!

This week’s highlighted media bring together ideas from students, teachers, and academics to identify problems and strategies for interrupting inequity and pursuing antiracism in schools.
“…when I think of my noble intention in life — justice and compassion. My wish for this world is that the concepts of justice and compassion would become that concepts that are most highly valued, and that any decision that we make would be rooted in them.”
This week’s roundup asks us to question the structures of our classrooms, especially discussion-based classrooms, and to consider several new approaches to familiar work.
“I hope we see schools embracing more opportunities for students to learn with the things that are around them, with the things that interest them. We’re going to see things become flexible and leave room for student creativity. It’s going to push us to reconsider the models we’ve been working with.”
