A colleague's descriptive observation of this strategy

Originally employed in corporate professional development settings, the Charette Protocol is a method of problem solving involving three phases of sending and receiving information.  The purpose of the protocol is to give all parties involved ample time to speak in an uninterrupted setting and to actively listen to the concerns of others.  The protocol requires three participants: a timekeeper, a speaker, and a listener.  In three trials, each student has the opportunity to verbalize and receive feedback on a writing concern of his or her choice.
