This is the second den meeting plan to finish up Communicator. I posted the plan for the first meeting yesterday.
Giving the talks was definitely the high point of this meeting. My den all brought in props and were well prepared for the talks.
Before starting with the talks, we spent a few minutes discussing “respectful listening”. I think this made an impression on them. They were very well behaved while the others were talking.
