Use this acronym for group work in your classroom. G-give thoughtful feedback. R- respect. O-On task. U-use soft voices. P-participate. S-stay with your group. This will help show your students how you expect them to act and behave while working in a group. Included is a color and black &white anchor chart. You can print,enlarge, or project. I also created a rubric for GROUP. This should be accessible to students at all times to refer to. I usually have the glue it into their journal or place it in a folder. I added a self assessment checklist and a peer review checklist for students.
