History C - Group Leader: Maurice Nieberg
Our group is more of a history discussion group rather than just a learning group. The format so far has been successful. We agree a subject for the following meeting and then hopefully the person who chose the subject will lead the group. It is not a question of just sitting and listening, but rather if someone has something to add they will make the point. The lead person so far has spoken for about 20 - 30 minutes and then other have expanded the subject. After a break for tea we finish up the subject and discuss the subject for the next meeting.
I have always stressed to the group that if they would like a change of format this can be discussed by the group. Also I have emphasised to the group that I am more than happy for people just to come and listen and not take part if they so wish.
