31 pages of lessons, student handouts and protocols to help scaffold student collaboration...and a bonus project included! Step-by-step instructions review the why, what and how for each student collaboration activity. These strategies can be used over and over again in any secondary classroom-truly a great investment for your craft.
The following strategies are included in this bundle:
-Strategy: "Team Huddle"
This strategy is applicable for the beginning of any group assignment-either at the beginning of a work time or the beginning of a project, to help students identify group members’ roles and tasks.
-Strategy: "Point of View Check"
A good time to use this protocol is in anticipation of an approaching challenge for a group. This strategy is best used as a “pause-point” in the middle of a group assignment or project.
-Strategy: Problem Solving Protocol
When a problem has arisen, at any point in a group assignment, use this protocol to help groups process through challenges.
-Strategy: Peer Feedback for Oral Presentations
Use this resource prior to a formal oral presentation. This strategy works best 1-2 days in advance of the presentation so that students have time to apply the peer feedback they receive as a result of this protocol.
-Strategy: Collaborative Feedback
This strategy can be used at any time during the process of improving student work-it teaches students explicitly HOW to give feedback. CraftED’s lesson: Infographics calls for this protocol in phase IV.
This lesson is an opportunity for students to put their collaboration skills into practice through the creation of a final product.
