The Third Space is defined as... "a space of regulated confrontation". With this notion the authors argue that students will be effective learners and participants of learning in the following manner (Pg.467-469).
- contest (x2)
- redefine (x2)
- disruptive (x5)
It seems that the recommendation of creating a Third Space is overly aggressive. Is it really necessary that students are always participating in a "space of regulated confrontation". I feel like this is advocating for unnecessary aggression. Educated debates and socratic seminars are incredible tools for stimulating discussion... but is combative communication really essential in student participation? Isn't it alright to agree sometimes?
