When you're participating in a class or in a discussion during a meeting or any group gathering, there are universally accepted ground rules.
We have included some of the more common rules here. However, your professor or facilitator may have a different set of expectations. Some will allow participants to create guidelines for the group to follow.
The goal is to be respectful of other ideas and other people.
No one has to agree with every idea, but everyone should have the opportunity to be heard.
