I conducted the ?My Manifesto” exercise as part of our Senior Retreat for our students who are completing a BA in Global Studies, where they have spent 6 or 7 semesters abroad, and it went well. I preceded it with a discussion of some of their re-entry challenges that they have faced in the past summers, since most go home for the summer and sometimes winter break, and contrasting that to how the re-entry issues have changed. Since they are in their final semester, they also have the re-entry wrapped into the whole anxiety of graduating, what will they do, etcetera.
“My Manifesto” was a great way to channel the good energy and collapse it and channel it into a nice summary of what they want to ‘manifest’ in the future!
Thanks Missy for the great tool!
