This weekend was our first overnight trip together. Take a few minutes and reflect on this unique experience; not many high school students are given the opportunity to head into the mountains for two days with classmates and instructor. When you look back on this experience I’d like you to rank, in order of their importance on our overnight trip, the concepts below and provide your reasoning for each ranking. Before you do this, think about the following questions and how the concepts below relate. Did you take care of your own needs, allowing yourself to help the
group when necessary? Were your personal emotions/feelings (negative)
a distraction for you? Did those feelings prevent you from being a
functioning member of the group? Were the ‘comforts of civilization’ on your mind often? Did social dynamics play a role in
the success or failure of our group? Did the weather make you miserable or did it make you adapt? What was your mental state going into the trip and what was it coming out of the trip? Did others communicate to you their wishes, needs or concerns effectively? Did you communicate to others effectively?
Attitude/Personal Feelings or Emotions
Please take your time and spend a few sentences explaining your ranking for each concept. Remember, check for spelling and grammar (absolutely no lower case pronouns! "i saw that i was being…")
