Faith CoLab: Tapestry of Faith: Building Bridges: A World Religions Program for 8th-9th Grades

Leader Reflection and Planning

Review the workshop with your co-leader:

  • How did participants cope with the complexity of this workshop?
  • Did the youth seem to grasp the concepts involved?
  • Did their Western sensibilities get in their way? Did yours?
  • Did the material itself prove useful in dealing with difficulties that arose?
  • Did your effort to stay levelheaded during the workshop help you review the concepts of a faith that teaches a peaceful heart?
  • How will the answers to these questions affect future workshops?

Continue to assess how particular activities work with your group—which worked well and which were less successful. Would you recommend one of the Alternate Activities instead of a core activity for a future group?
