Faith CoLab: Tapestry of Faith: Exploring Our Values Through Poetry: A Program for High School Youth

Leader Reflection and Planning

Planning a performance for workshop participants is a big job. Take time to check in with your co-leader on how each of you is feeling. Is the work divided evenly between you? Do you both feel the preparation is going as planned? If not, what can you do to get plans on track?

After monitoring your own level of stress or anxiety, review how the workshop participants are dealing with plans for the Poetry Slam. Hopefully, most participants are enthusiastic and actively assisting in the preparation.

Examine the newsprint from Activity 3, You and the Poetry Slam, Part I. Is anything missing? Highlight roles that have not been assigned. You will have a chance to fill these in during Workshop 13. Review the responsibilities and decide who will lead which ones.
