Tired of group work? Same students never participating? Going deaf from the noise of students not focusing? Just know you are not alone! I was tired of this same chaos in my classroom so I created roles and handouts for each group role to help keep students focused and to help them understand what I expected from them. The roles include a leader checklist, a time keeper checklist, a recorder sheet, and a task manager sheet. With the use of these in my classroom group work has become less complex and more enjoyable for both teachers and students!
