Reflection: Student Grouping What is Climate and What Causes it to Change? - Section 3: Engage


I found that the choices made around student grouping have an impact on how well the mind maps are constructed and presented. Creating balanced groups that will be able to communicate ideas effectively, interact around inquiry, problem solve and learn together is critical. Help students leant how to work as a team and foster these skills as the unit progresses. The time it will take you at the beginning to create these teams will save you time in the long run.
