Reflection: Accountability Events that Change Characters - Section 4: Collaborative Activity


I have found that if I want my students to talk about the activity I need to withhold the paper. This way students must talk to each other and share their ideas before they get the paper and begin work.  This way I can make sure partner pairs are actually doing the work or socializing. It also helps me check for understanding when students claim they are ready for the activity sheet but then not be able to tell me what they are going to do with it.
