Are you tired of having students who just keep time during cooperative learning? Do you see them disengaging as they watch the clock? Does your admin want to see more meaningful collaborative learning in your classroom? Look no further!!! Start cooperative learning off right with these cute posters that incorporate meaningful jobs focused on the learning task, higher-order thinking, and working collaboratively toward a common goal! In the bundle are THREE sets of jobs:
*Colored posters to display on the wall;
*Black/white cards to place at each individual station/center;
*ID badges for students to wear while at stations/centers;
