Reflection: Shared Expectations Adding a Soliloquy - Part 2 - Section 3: Independent Work


Being able to monitor and facilitate group work is not an easy feat.  It is something some teachers have difficulty with because very often productive discussion is noisy and in order to facilitate you have to refrain from sitting down and taking over.

This is something that has to be built in a classroom.  It doesn't just happen.  In fact the first few times I have groups discussion my students stop and look at me when I approach their table.  At this point in the year thought they know I am an invisible listener.  They continue without stopping to check in with me because they know the drill.

Students raise they hand if they have a question to get my attention, and I only interrupt when necessary to tell them something that will further the goal.
