12 What will you do today? Once you have had a chance to look at all of the posters, write down any information you feel is missing from the plans on a sticky note. Place the sticky note on the large butcher paper under the correct priority area.
14 Group Activity After taking time to review the information on each poster, you will sit in small groups and discuss your thoughts about each poster. Each person will have a “placemat” to use to write down ideas.
15 Group Activity At the end of the activity, we will be asking for a few volunteers to report back information from their group discussion. What are some of the key points your group discussed?
17 Next Steps All of your feedback will be compiled and will help improve the plan.
