Reflection: Student Grouping The Importance of Sequencing - Section 4: Collaborative Activity


This lesson was taught at the very beginning of the year, and one of the first experiences my students had working together to complete a project.  Where they took to heart the talking to each other about the literary text, for the most part they worked individually on their activity sheets.  Which, since nearly all of them finished the work, is not a bad thing; it does tell me that they are still young and need to be taught through a lot of modeling and opportunities of how to work together and share ideas that can be used to finish their activity sheets, or other learning projects.
