Protocol: Fortune Cookie Warm-Up


Adapted from:
School Reform Initiative, Fortune Cookie Warm-Up, Developed by Dave Lehman, April 28, 2005

Purpose:
This warm-up can be used to break the ice with a group, build trust and encourage participants to begin thinking about the topic at hand.

Process:
In a webinar or threaded discussion
1. Have each participant go to this site and get their fortune. (another fortune generator)

2. Ask them to think about how their "fortune" relates to them and their work, specifically asking them to relate it to the topic being covered.
3. Have participants share their fortunes and connections.
