The following is a MUST NEED for any classroom teacher. This product is all about creating a "sociogram".
Note: This product is created using "Numbers" using Mac. I have included a converted file for those using "Excel".
What is a sociogram?
A sociogram is a graphic representation of the relationships between students in your class. It shows the different dynamics of the classroom. This gives you insight into what preferences students have in working with others within the classroom (both academically and socially). This information is very valuable and can be used for a variety of reasons:
*Groups for different school work or school projects
*Seating arrangements within the class
*Seating arrangements at lunch
*Identify students who need intervention in regards to social interactions or friendships - and methods to intervene
*Good working partners and Good social partners
What is included?
*Step by step instructions which include 3 parts:
1. How to gather the data from students - and how to explain what you will be doing with the class and what the information will be used for.
2. How to construct the sociogram using "Numbers" (an application that is on all Mac computers) - I INCLUDED AN EASY TO USE TEMPLATE.
3. How to use the sociogram - for example, strategies to use on students who don't have many people who chose them.
*Easy to use template: I included an easy to use template on numbers with three sheets: One to input academic data, one for social data, and one that shows you the total. The template will include a chart with the information (the cells turn green for the people who are selected) and a graphic representation of your students choices.
THE TEMPLATE SUPPORTS A CLASS OF UP TO 30 STUDENTS. IF YOU REQUIRE MORE, SEND ME A MESSAGE AND I WILL UPDATE IT FOR YOU.
*Example: I have included an example of what a finished sociogram will look like. There is also one page of it which is in the preview.
Again, this is a MUST HAVE for all classroom teachers. I love using this periodically throughout the year to see if anything has changed, and when I intervene with certain students, if things change regarding that particular student.
