Reflection: Checks for Understanding Students Answer Text Dependent Questions Using Article ʺWhy We Keep Losing Our Keys” - Section 3: Student Learning Activity


As illustrated in the clarifying questions video clip, my students may be working individually but they are always listening to what I have to say to each other and will speak up if they also have input.  So even though they might not be sitting next to a learning partner there's still an exchange of information.  I wonder if this is a third way in which students can work in a cooperative manner?  They choose to sit apart but do converse at times about the task and therefore can be helpful in achieving the objective.  One thing I've learned from this "grouping" is that with struggling learners,  flexibility is paramount.
