Week 7 Get Started: Group-Facilitated Discussion Board Instructions

To do: Make forum posts: 1

Value: No grade this week; 100 points when submitted

Due: Week 8, Day 7


The purpose of this assignment is for student groups to demonstrate the ability to collaborate, design, and create a group-facilitated discussion plan. Once the plan is complete, each group will use their plan to teach fellow classmates about the group’s presentation topic.

Step 1: Groups

Check the roster or course announcements for your randomly chosen group number and specific presentation topic. The assigned presentation weeks for your groups are noted below.

Each group member should read the details of this assignment and be prepared to work with the group to complete the group-facilitated discussion plan.

Presentation Weeks: The weekly topics and presentation weeks are:

  • Group 1: Week 10 – Depression and Somatization Disorders
  • Group 2: Week 11 – Anxiety Disorders
  • Group 3: Week 12 – Mood Disorders (Bipolar Spectrum)
  • Group 4: Week 13 – Psychotic Disorders
  • Group 5: Week 14 – ADHD

Step 2: Connect

Connect with your group in the appropriate group thread in this discussion forum. Each group is more than welcome to continue using this discussion forum for the entire assignment.

During the initial meeting, determine the best way to proceed with this assignment as a group. Determine how often you will meet, the responsibilities of each group member, and on which meeting tool you would like to use if not this Discussion forum. (for example, Google Hangouts, Zoom, etc.).

Step 3: Create the group-facilitated discussion plan.

  • Remember that the group-facilitated discussion plan topic needs to be based on the child and adolescent populations.
  • This plan will be used during the topic discussion week and should elicit a thought-provoking discussion for your classmates.
  • Each member of the group is to explore and locate several resources regarding the group topic for the group members to review.
  • Once all resources have been reviewed by the group, the group will determine which resources, (a minimum of four resources (literature reviewed articles, videos, and the like) will be included as a part of you’re the group-facilitated discussion plan. These resources are needed to provide content for you’re the peers to review as a part of their participation in the discussion.
  • As a group, determine the details you want to present to your peers.
  • Once the resources have been reviewed and decided upon within the group, four teaching/learning discussion prompts should be created for fellow classmates to answer during their participation in the discussion.
  • Make sure each group member shares about the same workload.
  • Your plan should include the following:
  1. A summarized overview of the topic.
  2. At least four resources that you will be asking your classmates to review.
  3. Four discussion prompts you plan to use to facilitate the discussion.
  4. Any resources that you used in preparing your discussion prompts.
  5. Remember to use APA format.

Step 4: Submit the group-facilitated discussion plan for grading in Week 8.

For ideas on how to structure your discussion, including resources to help your classmates learn, please review this sample discussion prompt: Example of a Good Group Facilitated Discussion (PDF). Note: This sample provides you with guidance on structure, not on content!

Step 5: Group-Facilitated Discussion Presentation Week

  • On Day 1 of your selected topic facilitation week, one member of your group will be responsible for posting the following:
    • The presentation of your topic for your classmates to read.
    • Three to four discussion prompts for your classmates to answer. (Example: Please respond to the following questions.)
    • The resources you want your classmates to review.
    • Any instructions that will help your classmates understand what to do for your facilitated discussion.
  • During your group-facilitation week, each and every member of your group is to participate in the facilitation of the discussion. This means you are responsible for responding to each classmate’s initial discussion prompt post, making certain that everyone is engaged, questions are being answered, and the discussion is expanding.

Grading of Facilitation Group Work

  • Your group will be graded on your facilitation of the discussion, your preparedness for the week, and your responses to your classmates’ posts.

Grading for Non-Facilitating Students

All students who are not facilitating the discussion are responsible for and will be graded on the following:

  • Reviewing the discussion materials.
  • Responding to the facilitating group discussion prompts.
  • Commenting on two additional peers’ posts to create interesting dialog. Your responses should be in-depth and include evidence-based references.
