This is part of the Active Reviewing suite of methods.
1. Awareness-raising (bringing out different points of view and disagreements;
2. Focusing on issues which participants have found difficult to recognise or confront during the activity
3. Analysing a problem (similar to reconstructing the scene of a crime)
When a group needs to come to some deeper understanding of an issue, event or activity
- For each team sharing their activity, event, etc. divide the team into two sub groups.
- One subgroup takes the roles (people, objects, places, etc.) and re-enact what happened or a scene from different angles.
- The other team members narriate the story of the event or clarify why it happened, how it happened, what the outcomes were and the conclusion.
- This can be done for each perspective that should be investigated.
- Lead a discussion about the enactment.
