Do your students struggle to participate in groups despite your best lesson ideas? This is a quick way to share the expectations for group work with your class and have them check in before and and after the work to help them understand what group work should look like. With this quick tool, watch your ideas for group work improve as students start to grasp that group work isn't just a chance to chat or slack off but an opportunity to collaborate and learn with and from their peers. This takes 5 min. to implement, but will pay-off in every group activity, improving each time it is utilized. All students benefit as each know the expectations and no one is left doing all the work or sitting on the sidelines while the work is done.
