Discussion- Brainstorming for English

Brainstorming with mutiple people increases your discussion. The discussion can bring new ideas that you haven't thought of yet, and you will be helping other people. Here is an example; this is not the actual conversation, but what I got out of it.

I did not participate in the discussions for either the psychoanalytic groups or the feminist perspectives. I felt like everything that needed to be said was said, but I had a hard time generating my own ideas for comments on the essays that we read. When just with the groups, prior to the actual class discussions, I did participate in giving some insight on the particular essay that was read: I was in a psychoanalytic group with Andrew, Angela, Derek, and Stephen. One of the things I said that was particularly insightful, I thought, at least in helping my understanding of the text, was a connection to a movie called Mr. Brooks in which I was able to better explain the ideas of Freud and his "id/ego/superego" theory. Unfortunately, I cannot remember any one thing that any one person said during the discussion. None of it was fully understandable for me. It's no one's fault but my own, and I recognize that I did not do a sufficient amount of work in terms of notes to be able to get the most out of these discussions. I am capable, I know, and I will try harder to take notes and get the most I can out of the text for next time.
