Reflection: Student Grouping Can You Hear Me Now? - Section 2: Question for the Day


This is a lab where they need to work with a team to accomplish the task, and involved with the process. I noticed some students are getting tired of working in groups. There just wasn't that same excitement when I used the random sorter.

In a previous unit students listed two people that they would like to work with, then I made a spread sheet to see how I could match students with requests. Overall the teams worked well, there were just a few students where I needed to 'override' one of their choices.

Something to keep in mind to change up how the groups are made for the labs. Here is a resource to refer to when making groups:
