don’t forget!

There have been a number of problematic moments in COM250: the very first day, when I asked students if they were sure they understood what each other meant (during the icebreaker “cocktail hour” activity); in The Super Death Machine when Peter asked Jen if she knew what the Chinese characters on her sneakers meant, in The Tangents when Allison asked for someone’s phone number in case she missed class again. The last instance doesn’t seem (at least on the surface) to have anything to do with social identity per se – it appeared more related to the inclusion stage of forming, and the kind of role group members feared Allison might enact. (We’ll find out more about this one when Allison and D present next week on “perception.”)
