Reflection: Student Grouping How Do We Learn? - Section 3: Group Work: Finding our Common Thread

 

There was something really exciting about this lesson. It came together nicely. I think there was a certain level of unexpected connection that came from this group work activity. The group members understood that they were innately similar and were able to talk about their learning style in an open and honest way. They saw their peers in a new light: you're like me! I never realized we learned the same way.

I saw some new friendships form after this activity, which as a middle school teacher, is very rewarding.
