Do you love using Kagan's Cooperative Learning Structures? These are just two of the Rally Coach jobs I have used in my classroom.

If you are not familiar with Kagan Cooperative Learning, check out videos on YouTube or their website KaganOnline.com

Rally Coach is an exercise that allows students to "coach" their partner as they each do one problem at a time. To begin, each partner pair will get one paper. They will fold the paper in half and one will write his/her name on one side and the other will write his/her name on the other side. The paper stays folded throughout the whole activity. Assign one partner (A) to begin by reading the first sentence to his partner (B). Partner A will identify the noun and ask his Partner B if he is correct. If yes, Partner A will underline the noun with a crayon. They will then turn the paper over so Partner B can do the same thing- read the sentence, identify the noun, and underline it in red. If a partner misidentifies the noun, it is the other partner/"coach"'s job to coach his partner through the problem. For example, in this situation the partner would ask "Is that a person, place, or thing?" and encourage the partner to try again.

The goal of Rally Coach is not to tell your partner the answer but rather guide or coach your partner to find the correct answer. The job continues back and forth until it is complete.

This file includes a paper job where students can identify nouns and another paper job where students can identify nouns and verbs.
