Oral 2 is presented as a team of three students.

Each student plays one of the three roles below for 5 minutes, then there is a switch, twice, so that each student gets to play all three roles:

Role A: a marriage counselor or researcher who provides arguments in favor of the dominance model as the best, the equity model as the second best, and is skeptical of the unity model as too idealistic or unworkable.

Role B: a marriage counselor or researcher who provides arguments in favor of the equity model as the best, the dominance model as the second best, and is skeptical of the unity model as idealistic or unworkable.

Role C:  a marriage counselor or researcher who provides arguments in favor of the unity model as the best, the dominance model as harmful to intimacy, and the equity model as as a transition phase towards the unity model.

Round 1: Student 1 in Role A, Student 2 in Role B and Student 3 in Role C
Round 2: Student 2 in Role A, Student 1 in Role C and Student 3 in Role B
Round 3: Student 3 in Role A, Student 2 in Role C and Student 1 in Role B

Since each Round lasts for 15 minutes, the total time for Oral 2 will be 45 minutes. This will be followed by oral and written audience questions to all three students, still in their role mode.

Each student will have an ID badge or card on the table identifying the role they are enacting: Mostly Dominance, Mostly Equity, Mostly Unity. This is to help the audience keep track of the role switches.

Students assigned as a team need to meet ahead of time to coordinate their topics. As a team, you are to three topics from the assigned readings for your team -- see the Oral Presentations Schedule for the assigned pages. Probably two meetings would be sufficient preparation, and you can also use email with each other. Meetings take place optionally at 3 PM, or as soon as class is over.

Each topic must be structured to combine the content of the book pages assigned and the content of the Lecture Notes Section also assigned. You'll need to set up ahead of time three topics for the team. Each topic must relate to both the Book pages and the Lecture Notes Section specified.

The three students will address each of the three selected topics from their role perspective in that round. This means that each student has to prepare adequately to be able to represent each of the three topics from the three different role perspectives.

Round 1) Topic 1: Five minutes for each student (15 mins. total)

Each student addresses the topic from their role perspective, as defined above. The order will be Mostly Dominance, Mostly Equity, Mostly Unity

Round 2) Topic 2: Five minutes for each student (15 mins. total)

Each student addresses the topic from their role perspective, as defined above. The order will be Mostly Dominance, Mostly Equity, Mostly Unity

Round 3) Topic 3: Five minutes for each student (15 mins. total)

Each student addresses the topic from their role perspective, as defined above. The order will be Mostly Dominance, Mostly Equity, Mostly Unity

Audience questions follow the third round. These questions will be either oral or written. Answers should reflect your own understanding and opinion, not the role perspective.
