Agree or Disagree

After every adventure, it’s important to review your experience. Reviewing gives you the chance to reflect on your personal growth during the adventure, as well as your experiences on the adventure, both positive and negative. Your reviews should never be boring! Try out this review style – do you agree or disagree with what your fellow Scouts are saying?

Plan

  • When and where will you share this adventure review?
  • Who will lead this adventure review?
  • How will you come up with statements to present to the group?
  • How many statements will be included

Do

  • Have everyone in write some basic statements (not questions) about the last adventure you shared together.
  • The person leading the review then reads one statement at a time to the group.
  • Use opposite walls in your meeting hall to stand for “Agree” or “Disagree”. Those who agree with a statement (“I enjoyed this adventure.”) can move to the “Agree” wall, while those who feel the opposite way can move to the “Disagree” wall. Those who are kind of indifferent can stand someplace in between the two.
  • After getting an overall sense of how the group feels, talk about things in depth. Talk about why people agreed or disagreed with the statement.

Review

  • What do you know now that you did not know before?
  • How did the results of this review line up with your expectations and personal opinions?
  • How did this review affect the way everyone shared their thoughts?
  • How did this review lead to more or less insight about the adventure?
  • Would you use this approach review again in the future? Why or why not?
  • How might you do things differently next time?

Keep it Simple

  • You can start off with a list of questions to use on every adventure (e.g. “I enjoyed this adventure,” “I learned something on this adventure.”). You can use these prompts any time you do this activity and discuss why people felt a certain way about them.

Take it Further

  • Try developing a dice or ball with questions on it. This is either rolled or thrown to a person. The question they land on is the question that they answer.
