Round 2: Study statements, Request clarification and add more statements.

After all the statements and their explanations are entered in the wiki by the AUTHORS, the KMT will prepare and e-mail to you Table 2 asking you to read it carefully and pose questions for clarification of meaning to the authors of specific statements

If you do not understand the meaning of a statement proposed by a member of your group, this is your opportunity to ask questions for clarification of meaning.

Participants study each other's statements as they are recorded in the wiki and the preliminary Table 2. Each participant can use an idea which has been recorded to generate a new idea and enter it in the wiki.

TABLE 2 WILL EXPLICITLY IDENTIFY THE AUTHOR OF EACH STATEMENT. We will use the wiki as the medium to capture the discussion for clarification of meanings.

Follow these steps to make requests for clarification of a statement entered by another author:

  • Go to the Discussion tab on the "Round 1" page to see a list of all of the statements.
  • Click on one of the "Subject" to read an author's statement.
  • When you read a statement for which you need to ask a question for clarification, enter your question in the Reply Form on the bottom of the same page as their statement.
  • You need to enter your question in the Message box.
  • Click on "Post" and your question will be posted to the Wiki for this particular author of the subject thread.

If you are the author of a statement and somebody else is asking for clarification of your statement, you again fill out the Reply form and proceed to answer the question posed to you by another participant.

This interactive and iterative discussion for clarification of the meaning of the statements is being recorded automatically in the wiki as it unfolds. In this fashion the group creates in the wiki a record of their deliberations.

It will also be summarized and Tabulated by the KMT and sent to each participant electronically as an augmented and amended version of Table 2. You will recievie the new Table 2 before the implementation of Round 3.

PLEASE TAKE INTO ACCOUNT THE FOLLOWING STRICT RULE OF ENGAGEMENT: The questions for clarification posed to other authors/stakeholders should not include any "value judgments" about the merits or demerits of any statement. Only questions for clarification of the author's meaning are permitted at this stage of the group work. Furthermore, only the authors have the authority to clarify the meaning of their statements.
