Reflection: Safety Ruby Bridges: Uncovered in a poem - Section 4: Sharing Our Work......


The numbered corners strategy, again, is not my idea, but it's an effective way to group students into like sets.  The reason I chose this particular strategy for grouping students this time was to create groups of students who needed support on the same question.  If I let them partner up randomly, they may have to focus on two different questions and neither one would get sufficient time or focus.  Inevitably, one student would end up telling his or her partner the answer instead of them working through it together.  This strategy puts students together who all need help on the same answer so they both work on and end up with a stronger answer than they started with and provides a safety net because both students have the same struggle.  Even if both students have the same exact answer, it is a culmination of both of their thought processes, so that's OK too.
