Reflection: Back to back

In this article, you will find examples of reflection questions you can use, when facilitating SE learning through play with adolescents.
Here are examples of the kinds of reflection questions you could ask:

What?

  • How did it feel to be the one listening to the instructions?
  • How did it feel to be the one giving the instructions?
  • What was frustrating about this activity? What was fun or easy?
  • Did you adjust your strategy part way through? If so, from what to what, and why?

So what?

  • Do you have any experiences in your life when you have had a hard time communicating something to a friend or family member?
  • Thinking about experiences in your own life, what do you feel when someone does not understand what you are trying to explain to them?
  • Thinking about experiences in your own life, what you do not understand what someone is trying to explain to you?

Now what?

  • What would you do differently next time if you are the one receiving instructions?
  • What would you do differently next time if you are the one giving instructions?
