Leader Reflection and Planning
Talk with your co-leader about the workshop. What do you think went well? What might you have done differently? Did you learn anything about your working relationship or how you lead an activity that would be important to note for future workshops?
Thinking about the content of the workshop, what did you find most surprising about what you learned? Did the participants have any interesting reactions to the content? What would you like to learn more about?
If you are doing this curriculum as a series, go over the workshop plan for the next workshop with your co-leader. Who will do what preparatory tasks? Is there any research you will need to do? If you have more or less time than the 90 minutes planned for in the workshop outline which activities will you add or cut?
Be aware that the next workshop (Workshop 10, Our Covenantal Faith) includes an activity where the minister of the congregation meets with youth. If you have not already done so, make arrangements with the minister. Also, the Faith In Action for Workshop 10 is complex and requires advance planning and cooperation from congregational leaders.
