Reflection: Adjustments to Practice Speaking and Listening: Collaborative Conversations - Section 4: Collaborative Activity


I have taught this lesson for several years, but this year I chose to teach it differently in light of the new CCSS.  This year I am focusing on more collaboration activities to help my students learn to communicate and develop a finished project together.  This is new for me because in the past about the only projects my students worked on together would be the occasional art project or reader's theater.  I am finding that my students enjoy working together and are motivated to finish the activity.  I have also observed that by working in a collaborative group first helps my less confident students complete, or make an effort to, complete their independent work.
