Steps for Addressing Chlamydia in Your Community

Role of the Recorder

  • Records responses of each person on flip chart
  • Records exactly what is said – does NOT edit, paraphrase or summarize.
  • The recorder starts writing as soon as the person starts speaking in order to keep up. If the speaker moves quickly, ask them to repeat.
  • When the notes are read back to group,read exactly what is written. No paraphrasing, summarizing or editing. This is not a presentation – it is reporting what was written.
  • The facilitator takes over your role as Recorder when it is your turn to respond. You respond next to last, just before the facilitator.
  • Set agenda; have a clear outcome in mind
  • Choose and prepare handouts
