In "The Wi$dom Path: Money, Spirit, and Life," a Tapestry of Faith program
Distribute Handout 4, Case Study — The Miller Family. Introduce the case study, a family discussion around budgeting for a child's college education expenses. Ask for up to five volunteers to participate in the role play and assign them each a role number. Give the group about five minutes to read the case study description. Then, read the case study description aloud and invite volunteers to enact the role play. If you have more than five participants, invite those who do not have a role to observe the process.
Tell the role-players their task is to make progress toward a solution, but they needn't come to a final resolution. Allow 10 to 12 minutes for the role play. Afterward, give role-players an opportunity to offer feedback about their role. Was it easy or challenging? Comfortable or uncomfortable? Why?
Distribute Handout 2, Healthy Communication Practices and engage the full group to discuss these questions:
If the group includes people who use mobility devices such as a wheelchair, arrange the role-play space in such a way as to welcome them to take a role; that is, set chairs for the inner circle aside until you know how many you will need.
