Minimize the time it takes for your students to choose partners, and prevent shy students from being left out! It takes only 5 minutes of class time to have the students complete this Easy Choose Partner Form, and then you will never waste precious time again! Students find a partner for each section on the form, keep the sheet, and from then on, they know exactly who their partner will be according to which section you, the teacher, determine for each activity. It's a great way to avoid all of the common pitfalls of student pairing! It gives students the freedom to choose their potential partners, but it leaves you in control of who that will be. This way they do not partner up with the same student every time, they avoid peers with whom they do not get along, quarreling is minimized, and every student is involved. Note: For odd numbers of students or for absent partners, it takes only a moment to decide how you want to group the exceptions (with each other, with an existing partnership, etc.). You choose!
