I understand what Sweeney tries to do in our class discussions. He stays quiet and gives us the floor to speak up with our opinions. It‘s nice that a teacher gives us room to speak our opinions freely. However, most of the time no one listens to one another and then the discussion is lost. No one takes the discussions seriously. Everyone either talks to their friends or picks up their phones and starts messing with that. The other times everyone gets really into the discussion… and then they start talking to the people around them about their opinions instead of sharing with the class. Eventually people are heard from across the room and then they start fighting instead of discussing and listening to what the other person has to say. There is a thing as too much freedom. Especially when people stop taking a class seriously because the teacher is nice enough to let us speak our opinion.
