Reflection: Student Grouping Introducing Diverse Groupings... AND Making Them Easy - Section 1: Why is this important?


Here I am explaining some of the specific reasons why I like using sorting sticks.  Not only are sorting sticks something easy that I can use quickly, but they also really support my students' learning!  Students learn more from hearing all sorts of ideas from different people; I like to provide them with ample opportunities to do that!  As for me, I like to hear ideas from different groups; it actually makes assessment more complete because it allows me to see and hear students in many ways with diverse opportunities for feedback!
