The Rock Game

November 20, 2010 at 8:31 pm 7 comments

I liked the rock game because it was a chance for everyone to talk about their experiences on the topics. That what makes this class so interesting. Not only did we accomplish the fact that we are all comfortable around one another, we all speak our opinions in front of one another without hesitation.

I’ve noticed that there are several people in the class who talk about personal and hurtful experiences. I admire this because although I’ve dealt with tragedy.  I cannot talk about it. Those that talk about experiences may not be easy but make an impact on me.

    Although I wasn’t involved with the rock game, as an audience member, it was interesting to watch. I can relate when you said that you are not good at talking about tragedies and experiences like some of the students in our class are, because I am not either. I admire their strength to talk about those touchy subjects because it is something that I cannot do.

    I agree that the rock game was very interesting to watch. It gave us all the opportunity to see how other people felt and take in their opinions on things. Especially those who usually wouldn’t speak up on a subject and give their point of view, the rock game gave them a chance to do so. We also got a chance to see the difference in opinions that some has compared to others! (Shawn) haha

    When Austin shared his experience, you could hear a pin drop. I felt bad for Shawn. I know he felt bad. I was never bullied in school but was made fun of because of my weight which was not near what it is today.

    I really enjoyed the rock game also. Even though i was not involved in it, i had the chance to sit back and really listen to each one and felt that as the game went on each person started feeling more at ease with each other and started sharing more and more, i believe this game could bring strangers into becoming friends.

    bringing personal experience to the conversation brings it to a whole new level. i too admire it. i have things that i can not talk about. they hurt to even think about. thank to those who brought the level of conversation to the next level.

    I know what you are saying. I too liked the rock game and how everyone shared a little about their lives.

    Was very interesting hearing people tlak about how they feel about a certain topic. Some had a different opinion on it.
