Thinking on your Feet
Trevor brought a mysterious black bag filled with a few props for Table Topics. Marvin pulled out a tile with a lightbulb and shared his idea of going skiing at Norquay on the moguls and what happened on his last run! **TipShare about something that has happened to you rcently.
Chris took out a loaf of bread and shared a personal story about his breadmaking uncle. ** Tip: Talk about a family member or friend - you will speak with more conviction.
Mary drew a medal and shared about her latest accomplishment of starting a blog for Level 4 in the Pathways Educational Program. **Tip: Giving specific details will make your ideas more persuasive.
