Discussion Questions:

  • What is your first instinct when you disagree with someone? Do you speak up? Stay quiet? Get angry?

  • Do you try to convince someone they're wrong or listen to how they feel? What can be helpful about listening with an open mind?

Ways to Practice:

  • Tell a partner about a recent disagreement you had and try to explain the other person's argument from their point of view.

  • Next time you disagree with someone try to listen to what they're saying and make it a discussion vs an argument.
