One Page Essays And Sharing


The Purpose of this exercise is to encourage the students to read the book. I got this suggestion from a women who wrote to Robin. Please feel free to add more information if you've used this approach. The facilitator found that everyone participated, and literacy issues were not a problem for the men in her group.


  1. Students are asked to write a one page essay/reflection on the assigned reading in "Houses of Healing"
  2. The next class, students are divided into groups of three. They break into small groups and each read their essays and have some time to discuss them.
  3. Students then come back to the full group and are given time talk about anything they'd like to share with the larger group.
