Protocols, such as those designed by the National School Reform Faculty, aid in developing a positive, trusting, and meaningful climate in which to give and receive feedback and suggestions for learning and growth.
This design of this protocol is meant to encourage a presenter of an idea to listen to suggestions by others. Feedback is harnessed by three categories: "I like..."; "I wonder..."; and "Next steps...". The groups meet regularly.
The purpose of this protocol is to get feedback while mid-way through a design or production of a product.
A dilemma needs outside eyes and ears. An outside group asks questions and gives uninterrupted suggestions.
An interesting way of determining your own as well as others' comfort levels.
