How have the youth in your program responded to your efforts asking more purposeful questions?

They have noticed that there is a change.  At this point, I’m not sure they have accepted it yet, or not.  I have a few members that want to answer every question so it is challenging to get all of them involved.  Many just stare at me seeing if I’ll give up and answer the question.  This is going to take some work, but there are glimmers of hope.  They seem to respond better if it is a follow-up question if I am roaming the room during the hands-on work rather than in the large group parts of the activity.

Some youth have responded really well.  A few are even asking thoughtful questions of each other!  Having a list of questions with each activity guide has helped me to remember to ask more/better questions.
