It can be fun -- and a good way to internalize something -- by imagining and enacting a scenario that engages with what you are learning. Even figuring out what the actors/roles are, in addition to the story, can be a useful learning exercise. You may also wish to designate someone as a (part time) narrator to set the scene.
For example, in order to engage with concepts related to new media and polarization, you might describe/play a scenario in which polarization occurs, making use of the following concepts.
- polarization: the limited pool and social comparison
- reactive devaluation
- social (misinformation) cascade
