ABOUT: Problem-solving discussion is an effort on the part of a small group to reach a solution to a problem through informal interchange of facts, inferences, and judgments. This method of discussion seeks consensus rather than majority rule—all students in the group must agree on the final answer. This will require attentive listening and responsive commentary and questioning. The focus of this event should be the encouragement of cooperation and critical thinking to arrive at the collective goal of better understanding and problem-solving.
