Reflection: Routines and Procedures From the Desk of the President - Section 2: Days 1-3: Explore


You may have noticed when looking through my web quest that I pre-selected student groups for this activity. Normally, I do not do this. I try to give students a choice in their partners, sometimes setting boundaries as to the number of partners they are allowed to choose, or saying something to the effect of, "Every group must have an equal number of girls and boys", etc.

Because I am teaching this lesson towards the end of the year and the students are starting to get "squirrely", I decided to choose groups that I thought would be the most productive. Additionally, I chose to break up cliques and groups of friends evenly for voting purposes. This will make sense later.
