Protocol Overview and Instructions:
Sometimes your ideas need to be grouped so progress can be made. The Start-Stop-Continue Protocol allows you to make progress in the moment and for the future.
Start-Stop-Contuine Protocol Instructions
We tried the Start, Stop, Continue protocol at HFBL on Friday February, 4. Our driving question for this activity was, “How can I improve my performance at HFBL as a student and as a person throughout the rest of the year?”. We took a look at what we came up with from our Speedboat protocol. This helped students remember some of things that were holding them back during the first semester for them to determine things that they might need to start or stop. Overall I think that this protocol was excellent. It helped students reflect on what they needed to do in order to be successful and helped give them guidelines to effectively self reflect and make goals for the following semester.
I think one of the challenges that we had during this protocol is that some students had a rough first semester and hate self reflection. This is a great protocol that helps people reflect and determine what needs to change and some of our students feel trapped in the cycle of never completing goals or classes and it really discourages them. I would say as a group we had some great reflection that was done at the individual level and some students were very blunt with themselves and named somethings that we were going to have conversations about. Now they seem to be able to know what they need to change. I am still worried about their ability to take action based off of the reflection and will attempt to hold them accountable to what they said they need to stop, start, and continue.
