Guest Speaker follow up assignment

Phil Boyte Reflection Assignment

Looking for an assignment you can use to build on a keynote or guest speaker presentation.  Try this one attached above.  Phil Boyte spoke at our school. His presentation was excellent and I highly recommend him.  His website:

The day after his session we spent time debriefing what stood out to them.  Then the class received this assignment so they could take the next step.  What I like most is challenging them to apply a concept in their life and then report back.  The quality of what I get back has been very good.  You can adapt this assignment to any keynote or guest speaker.  Good luck!

Red and Green Holiday Challenge

red-and-green-challenge

Give the Red and Green challenge a try this holiday season.  If it is too late for this year maybe file it for next year.  This idea came from a Canadian Student Leadership Conference I attended but I have no idea which one.

We invited all staff and students to participate.  You come to our table at lunch in the cafeteria and we give you either a red or green card with a number on it.  You then have a week to find the person with the same number in the opposite color.  The two of you then come back to the sign up table and together fill out a simple questionairre that lets them get to know each other a bit better.  Their names then go into a draw for a $50 gift certificate each at the local mall.

We are seeing posters like the above picture appearing around the school.  There are many more postings on media as they are looking for each other.  A simple way to make connections in your school.  I would suggest that you have people come to sign up.  That way they are actively seeking the other person.  One time we handed them out to everyone.  I felt bad for students who had a partner who didn’t care and threw out their card.

Happy Holidays
