I’ve asked the students to pair up to create a 2-3-minute podcast that demonstrates they can participate in a respectful, evidence-based disagreement over Poe’s “The Raven.” I asked each student to introduce the other student’s position, and to do so respectfully, without caricaturing or demeaning the ignorant or evil jerks whose opinions or values or life experiences dare to differ from theirs. I made a direct reference to the political tension most of us are seeing played out on social media and in the real world. The students took their MacBooks and iPads and are now, I presume, diligently working.
