C. Questions written down on pieces of paper.

D. Everyone will sit in a circle. Each person will pick a piece of paper from the bag and read it off.
It will say, “would you rather…” Then each participant can go around and say what they would
do and explain it, (depending on time). This could be done in small or large groups.
E. Primary interaction pattern- Intragroup: action of a cooperative nature by 2 or more persons
intent upon reaching a mutual goal.
F. Adaptation- I would adapt this to young adults with intellectual disabilities, like down syndrome.
Individuals with this diagnosis are usually categorized as someone who cannot make their own
decisions. To adapt “Would You Rather” for this population, I would make the questions geared
toward more every day things, like “would you rather eat cereal this morning or pancakes?”
Questions like that will allow them to become independent. Throughout the activity I would try
to explain how it is important to make your own decisions about everything and give them some
skills to do so. If this population never gets the chance to be independent, learned helplessness
is common to occur, discouraging from doing a variety of things.
