I teach one “conversation” class, which is probably more closely related to dentistry since it’s like pulling teeth. They don’t want to talk, and sometimes I get discouraged. Today, though, I was looking around the Internet, looking at sites related to conversation, and I came back to an old favorite, “New Dimensions Radio.” On this particular day, they were airing a show entitled “Circles, Conversation and Community with Vicki Robin, Juanita Brown, Leif Utne.” It was a great show on conversation cafes. I’m going to see what I can borrow to plug into an intermediate or advanced course using some of these concepts. Maybe not for my regular classes, but for community college classes at least. It might be really interesting.
