Debrief Conversation

Now that you have completed all activities in the rest of the Team Freeze Tag Unit, it is time to reflect on your experience. In this section, you will be looking back at what you and your group have done during the Unit and discussing it during a debrief conversation.

Self Reflection

First, answer the following questions in your Engineering Notebook.

  1. What made your group successful in the Team Freeze Tag Competition? How did you work together throughout the Unit?
  2. How did you change your driving during this Unit? Why did it change?
  3. How did you change your BaseBot build during this Unit? Why did it change?
  4. What was your favorite part of this Unit? Your least favorite part?

Then, reflect on the learning targets you co-created with your teacher for this Unit. Have you learned what you set out to learn? Why or why not? What were you most successful with? Why? How do you think you can build on your progress moving forward? 

Using the answers to your questions in your engineering notebook, rate yourself on the Debrief Conversation Rubric linked here ( Google Doc / .docx / .pdf ). For each of the topics, rate yourself as an Expert, Apprentice, or Novice.

Ask your teacher if you need any clarification on what is expected of you during this self-assessment.

Once your group has completed their self-reflections, check-in with your teacher and let them know you are ready for your debrief conversation.

Debrief Conversation

During this conversation, your teacher will ask you the same questions that you answered above in your engineering notebook. You and your group should verbally explain each of these answers during your debrief conversation.
