- Lay out one or more sets of Dialoogle Magnum cards on the floor. Use one set for every 15 students.
- Ask the students to think of the experience from the project that has made the greatest impression on them. Then ask them to choose an image each that reminds them of that particular experience.
- Divide the students into smaller groups of four to seven and give them no more than two minutes each to tell the other group members about their experience.
- When all have told the others about their experience, ask the students to form new groups and tell their story once more.
- Form new groups a third time and repeat. You may need to make sure that no one is grouped with the same people more than once.
- By now the students have heard 12-21 stories in less than an hour and have a good idea of the most significant experiences. Ask the students to place a hand on the shoulder of someone who told a story that they found particularly touching.
- When all students have done so, choose the three or four students who have the most hands-on their shoulders and ask them to tell their stories in plenum.
This exercise is particularly useful for evaluating intensive courses like school camps, theatre performances, project weeks and other larger assignments involving older students.
