As you watch the skill video below, think about these questions:

What is the role of the youth in this scene? What is the role of the facilitator?

How is sharing encouraged? What is the assumed next step after the youth shares? 

How does the facilitator "push" deeper learning? What is the youth's response? 

What would you do differently if you were the staff person? What would you do the same?

Now that you've watched the video, reflect on what you saw and post your responses.

What are different methods that the youth use to document their data?  What are other method you could use? 
How does the facilitator support the children's ideas, even if they aren't correct, and push them to consider other ways?
