Anything to tell us?

For the teacher facilitator - to effectively coach students and the local service partner through the SWOT analysis conversation - aiming for leverage points rather than a list of pros and cons. Data to drive planning, data for enhanced service learning.

Teacher facilitators will ‘wear this hat’ during the goal setting discussion between students and the local service partner. Not coaching, but explicitly looking at the stages and prompts.
