We want to spend some time doing a simple quick evaluation.

Steps

1. Have the group work in small teams (3-6 people).

2. Photocopy a number of the stars and bricks attached here to use for input.

3. Ask the group first as individuals to take 5 minutes to write 3 - 5 items that they appreciated during today's session and  3 - 5 items that they found should be improved. If people start working together, ask them to focus individually for the 5 minutes.

4. Then ask each small team to share their thoughts with each other and take 10 minutes to create 5 - 7 stars (things appreciated) and 5 - 7 bricks (should be improved), and to post them on a prep-prepared chart.

5. Have the whole group come stand at the chart and read it. Ask:

a. What do you notice on the chart?

b. Where would you say there is agreement about points that need to be corrected for today?

c. Where is there some agreement about things that went well today?

d. Are there things that should be added?
