Sometimes discussions can become lively and lead to strong disagreement between group members. Class discussions should remain objective and impersonal – ideas should be challenged, but never people.
If you feel your anger levels rising, take a deep breath and stop talking for a while.
If others are getting angry you might be able to draw attention away from the disagreement by saying ‘we appear to be saying the same thing here…’ or ‘that’s a good point but we are off track…’
