To individuals working through this course: Use this Course Review to test yourself and ready yourself for the formal reporting for your degree.

To facilitators and teachers of College of Capturing Courage: Use the following questions and framework to have a review day with your class. It is not a day of teaching but a day of conversation and recalling the material together. In this, your students will learn from each other and the concepts taught in the months past will be engaged and wrestled with once more. This is very valuable. This kind of process reminds us of what we know and challenges us to think further about what we do not recall; we realized what we missed and encourage its lessons in our brain and thinking once more.
