    I have participated in this strategy for discussion in some of my classes and it immediately created a more intimate setting as a backdrop to encourage more people to speak openly. I usually vary depending on classes on how often I speak, and this strategy seemed to break down those barriers I had because of that openness. It also makes it easier to see a person’s body language as they speak, and it seemed to give everyone an opportunity to give input and be more comfortable about it even though at first the concept of being close and exposed is more unsettling compared to the traditional classroom setting. For art classes I feel like this is even more essential because input is so important, as it is part of Judy Chicago’s pedagogy and implements more reflection on the artworks. That internal response from each student is brought to light from the open environment, and as a result deeper understanding for the subject is determined by the group as a whole through that mutual contribution.
