Two things to make clear to the class:
One thing's for sure:
Asking Students "What do You Think About Trump?" Won't Work
I could show a video of a Trump rally (and a Clinton rally to be neutral) and then ask students "What do you think – is this Narcissism?" I'm sure we'd get plenty of discussion, but I doubt it would be productive.
Okay, so I asked myself, “What’s the goal of bringing him up anyway?” Here’s what I’m thinking:
So instead of asking the class "What do you think of Trump?" I'm going of try this:
My hope is that my two goals will surface during the discussion. Other ideas will come out as well, so I hope it’ll be both interesting and productive.
I’m struggling with how to broach this topic without the class getting off track and the whole thing devolving into political rants. Do you think this approach will work or do you know another way to have a productive discussion on narcissism and Trump?
