    Time needed: 25-35 minutes

    Students should choose one of the four observations they wrote down and write it on the board. Based on the lines or observations or questions students write on the board, the teacher can lead the discussion and answer questions. This is also an opportunity to return to the questions raised in the pre-viewing discussion.

    The same students who read the handout of the descriptions of the main contenders should read them again (again, they can be found online at this link). The teacher and class can vote, at this point, for any (or none!) of the contenders.
