    • The tasks are used to elicit variables and model structure as well as incorporate reflection.
  2. The facilitator, modeler, and gatekeeper discuss the agenda for the GMB session using 15-20 minute time blocks to discuss each activity to be included.
    • Some tasks may take more than 15-20 minutes to plan.
  3. The facilitator, modeler, and gatekeeper revise the agenda after the first version has been completed. The agenda may be revised multiple times.

    • Scheduled times for the activities
    • The public agenda to be shared with the group
