Reflection: Classroom Setup Round Robin Review (Unit 9/L1-7) - Section 2: The Activity


In this particular activity the ideal group is one of varying abilities. I first want students to try answering the questions independently, then discuss these as a whole group. If grouped by ability, students struggling or ELL students may be mocked at, especially if faced with a tough questions which nobody in the group can answer. 

Also, I carefully select the questions making all of them quite achievable, yet challenging. I like to make one pretty straight forward and the other 3 of gradual increasing difficulty.
