2. participants will stand close together in a circle.
3. Give the ball of yarn to one participant and ask he/she to tell the group about a time when they enjoyed school (even if it was in kindergarten and then toss the ball of yarn to another participant across the circle while holding onto the end of the yarn.
4. The next participant catches the ball of yarn, responds with their information, holds the yarn while tossing the ball of yarn on to another person across the circle.
5. The next question will be "If you could change one thing about our school what would it be?" and repeat the steps
6. We will then discuss the purpose of the web (ie: the power of many people working together, communities/clubs can work effectively when everyone does their part).
Toss a balloon or ball onto the web and continue to illustrate your teaching point. The ball can represent a student. Ask the group to tighten the web to provide better support (everyone is needed to make it work). Ask the group to move the ball around the web in a circle, passing it to each person in the group (communication is important to get the job done). Use several balls or balloons and ask the group how a community can make the web of support stronger for young people.
Next we are going to use metaphor cards to discuss what we think our own leadership style is.
We will watch a quick film clip from Star Wars about the power of believing, looking at possibilities. The training scene with Yoda and Luke in The Empire Strikes Back.
Finally, if we have time, we'll take a look at the course outline.
