How would you have like things to go?
Can you think of another way you might have approached the situation? What do you think might have happened differently if you had done that? What do you think prevented you from approaching the situation that way at that moment?
Can you think of a similar situation another time when things ended differently. What was different about that time?
Are there other possibilities for structuring the activity in a way that you think might help? Consider the factors you noted above about the situation.
