INFO SHEET – Strengths And Weaknesses

   Your teacher will give your group a set of cards.
   Your group must appoint a dealer who shuffles, deals one card to each of
    you and then puts the remaining cards in a pile face down on the table.
   Think about the card you have been given and how it reflects your
    personality, as either a strength or a weakness. If the card means
    something to you, KEEP IT.
   Starting to the left of the dealer each member of the group, in turn has
    the chance to reject their card and put it face down underneath the pile,
    and replace it with another from the top of the pile.
   If you get a blank card you can write in strengths or weaknesses of your
    choice.
   Then, in turn each one of you has to pick up another card which you can
    either keep or out back under the pile and replace it with another from
    the top until all the cards are picked up.
   You can only reject one card in each turn.
   The exercise is complete when all the cards have been used, although it is
    likely that some cards may not be acceptable to anyone.
   Everyone in the group then shows their selection of cards to the rest of
    the group and, in turn, each of you explains your choice of strengths and
    weaknesses cards.
   Other members of the group may ask you to give examples e.g.

          Honest – found $5.00 and handed it in to the school office
          Ambitious – want to compete in the Olympics
          Indecisive – took an hour to decide what to wear last Saturday

   When you have all had your turn, discuss any changes you would like to
    make to your selections.
   Think about what you have learned as a result of this game.
