Task #1 (10 minutes)

I want us to have a case reflection form that we can fill out at the end of a trial day. I want you to download save, and share, the document below. It is a blank document right now. I want you to come up with 5 questions we should ask ourselves at the end of each trial day that we would feel comfortable responding to and letting our peers read. These questions need to be relevant to the cases and allow for us to read the responses and know what we need to improve on as well as how we did.
