Introduction

[Describe how important it is to be able to distinguish among these things, to identify which is best or most appropriate for a given situation. State that this evaluation requires looking at these things from multiple perspectives, all of which must be taken into account. This exercise will teach you how to look at things through several lenses at once.]

Task

[Write a brief statement like the following.]

Your task is to work together and agree on which [2] of these [5 things] is the best and which [2] are the worst. Your decision will reflect the consensus of your group's looking at these things from a number of different perspectives.

Process

1. Your instructor will divide you into groups of [2 to 5]. Each of you in the group will be assigned one of the following roles:

[Describe each of the roles/perspectives]

2. Each of of you should look at the following items quietly from your single perspective. Write down what you like and don't like about each one from that perspective. Make notes that are sufficiently detailed that you can explain your position when you get together with the others in your group. Your instructor will keep track so that everyone will finish at the same time.

[provide links to the items here]

3. Now work with you group. Share your opinions about each. Your task is to arrive at consensus that takes each perspective into account.

Evaluation

Describe to the learners how their performance will be evaluated. Specify whether there will be a common grade for group work vs. individual grades. You may want to have separate rubrics for individual and group work.
