Reflection: Lesson Studies How to Support The Problems With Stronger Evidence - Section 4: Closing the Loop


Last group session was bossy students - this time I had the opposite - "not involved" students. As I made my way around to all the groups I just sat and listened to what they were saying and watched their interactions. I saw two different students not paying any attention to their group.  in fact they were actually sitting outside of their group structure and a group of students who were completely off task and engrossed in a discussion that was not about the book. I quietly signaled all to get back on task, but realized that I couldn't be in all places at one time when they finally met in their smaller groups. I chose to talk with my students and have them problem-solve to fix the problem.

They decided that there should be an assessment form that they can use to grade each other on not only the work and reading, but also on participation. Great solution! I adjusted my group assessment form and am looking forward to trying it in the groups.
