Sharing and Responding
Response Menu
(menu options are response strategies
from the
book, Sharing and Responding, by the great
Peter Elbow and the fantastic Pat Belanoff)
1. Sharing: No Response

2. Pointing and Center of Gravity
- words or phrases / passages somehow strike you / stick in your mind

3. Summary and Say back
What have you heard?  The main thing? The almost-main things?
What do you hear me getting at in my piece?

4. What is almost said?  What do you want to hear more about?
What idea(s) seem to be hovering around the edges?
