How did it go?


( with Mystery Envelopes)
We remember:
10% of what we read
20% of what we hear
30% of what we see
50% of what we both see and hear
70% of what we talk about with others.

*The act of collaboration itself raises the reading comprehension of every student in our classes; thus, it's important for us as teachers to build meaningful collaboration time for our students.

But what are some problems we have with group work?

"no hitchhiking."
Group Goals & Individual Accountability

Simply putting kids into groups & giving them time to talk will not automatically result in higher-level thinking.

Consider: How to structure them? Which strategies will best generate meaningful discussion between all group members?

Technology Tip
of the week

ELA Strategies week 2: Collaboration
Building Effective Groups
size matters
time & task
specific roles
1. NO HITCHHIKING. Everyone participates
2. Be critical of ideas, not people.
3. We are all in this together. We are a community of learners.
4. Restate what someone said if it is not clear.
5. If there are two sides to an issue, try to understand both sides.
6. Listen to everyone's ideas, even if you do not agree with them. It often takes more skill to listen than it does to talk.
7. Let all ideas emerge.
Silent Exchange
Save the Last Word
for Me

The smaller the better--3 is great
In groups of 5 or 6, students can find places to hide
Mix up partners (appointment clocks)
Before starting the task, be sure they understand it
Set a time limit
Don't give them TOO much time. Err on the side of not enough
Send message that they need to start immediately
Literature Circles by Harvey Daniels
Having a role provides each student with a focus & gives them a framework to start talking
Examples: discussion director, illustrator, connector, summarizer, questioner, clarifier, predictor...
Reciprocal Teaching model or Lit Circles models
Individual: each student in the group has to produce a product
Group: Each group will produce one product, but select a student at random to present or share
