Reflection: Student Grouping Looking at the Characters - Section 4: Collaborative Activity


In this activity I wanted students to mix it up a bit when they chose their partners, by having my students choose a partner they normally do not work with.  The featured video is an example of students working but not very happy about it.  

At first I thought about switching the two in this video, but then I thought, in real life sometimes we have to work with people that we don't really want to.  The best we can do is be cordial and just get through it.  I explained to these two that it was ok to want to work with our friends, but we learn new things from working with different people.
