22
Becky_Ellis_6/6/114:01 PMHey #sschat Glad to be discussing group work... students today thrive when they learn in this environment!
23
classroomtools6/6/114:01 PMThe best guide I've found is Gene Sanford's DEVELOPING EFFECTIVE CLASSROOM GROUPS. http://bit.ly/mNHstG #sschat
24

25
padgets6/6/114:01 PM#sschat Hi everybody! my name is Sharon and I am a HS science teacher from Iowa lurking and a learning! :0)
26
ryanwolcott6/6/114:01 PMI rarely use whole class discussions anymore. % of engaged students is too low. Kagan structures increase % of engaged students. #sschat
27
ancientcivteach6/6/114:02 PMHi, Mendy from South Carolina! Glad to be talking about group work #sschat
28
Becky_Ellis_6/6/114:02 PMRT @Dontworryteach: Q1: What are the policies and procedures that work best for group work in your classroom? #sschat
29
cherraolthof6/6/114:02 PM@RyanWolcott Agreed, it's tricky. #sschat
30
classroomtools6/6/114:02 PMAn activity I adapted from Sanford's book is located here http://bit.ly/iAYbEg #sschat
31
cybraryman16/6/114:02 PMQ1 Each person in the group has to have a function & responsibility. #sschat
32
Dontworryteach6/6/114:02 PM@gregkulowiec Group work won out. What are you "what works" first up #sschat
33
Dontworryteach6/6/114:02 PMTalking group work today with Q1: What are the policies and procedures that work best for group work in your classroom? #sschat
34
Femimikiki6/6/114:02 PMRT @Becky_Ellis_: Woot! Just 5 minutes until we get some group work mojo going! #sschat
35
gregkulowiec6/6/114:02 PMHello #sschat, I'm checking in from Plymouth, MA. Topic tonight, I missed the announcement.
36
Mr_McLaughlin6/6/114:02 PM@Dontworryteach Q1: EVERYONE has a role to play, and EVERYONE should be listened to #sschat
37
ancientcivteach6/6/114:03 PMI agree with Ryan about Kagan Structures - easy to implement once they have been taught #sschat
38
Dontworryteach6/6/114:03 PM@ancientcivteach nice to see you! #sschat
39
Dontworryteach6/6/114:03 PM@classroomtools Great resource. We'll be developing a "best of/highlights" for tonight as well so don't worry if u miss something #sschat
40
gregkulowiec6/6/114:03 PMQ1: I follow up all group work with an individual component. #sschat
41
historyfriend6/6/114:03 PM@cybraryman1 Agreed and they should trade roles in a major project so all students learn all aspects. #sschat
42
historyfriend6/6/114:03 PMHaving group decide what role person will do each day in class is good. Also have group divide up and assign HW. #sschat
43
lmsahistory6/6/114:03 PMMy name is Molly & I am from Chicago. I will teach Human Geography next year and I need all the help I can get. #sschat
44
MsSandersTHS6/6/114:03 PM@Dontworryteach detailed & specific checklists for the project/task that are signed off on...accountability & explanation #sschat
45
padgets6/6/114:03 PM#sschat Q1 each student must communicate with the others in a group also peer review is something I do
46
ThalesDream6/6/114:03 PMQ1: I like the rules for deliberative dialogue from the Choices Program at Brown Univ. http://bit.ly/l1tI2g #sschat
47
UkiahCoachBrown6/6/114:03 PMI have to admit, most Seniors are very reluctant to do group work. To much of a split in what gets done and who does it. #sschat
48
Becky_Ellis_6/6/114:04 PM@bergerbe Congratulations Ben! The first year is always so exciting! #sschat
49
Becky_Ellis_6/6/114:04 PMQ1. Like it when the individual component to follow up is writing, that is really important with the new common core. #sschat
50
bergerbe6/6/114:04 PMRT @gregkulowiec Q1: I follow up all group work with an individual component. #sschat love the accountability created there
51
bergerbe6/6/114:04 PMWhat's up everyone! Ben from N. Mi three days from completing my first year! #sschat
52
cherraolthof6/6/114:04 PMQ1: Group work definitely needs individual reflection time at the end of the large/small project. Chance to show ind. learning. #sschat
53
classroomtools6/6/114:04 PMI agree with @historyfriend and @cybraryman1 that organization is key to getting groups to work effectively. #sschat
54
cybraryman16/6/114:04 PMRT @historyfriend: @padgets Also - self evaluation at end, saying what student did and commenting on how group worked as whole. #sschat
55
Dontworryteach6/6/114:04 PM@UkiahCoachBrown Definitely think individual aspect can help w/that. Have u seen that work? #sschat
56
Dontworryteach6/6/114:04 PM@ancientcivteach @RyanWolcott Could you summarize some of the Kagan Structures 4discussion purposed? #sschat
57
historyfriend6/6/114:04 PM@padgets Also - self evaluation at end, saying what student did and commenting on how group worked as whole. #sschat
58
MmeNero6/6/114:04 PMI use Google Docs in groupwork so that students can help e/o not only in the classroom but at home. #sschat
59
MsSandersTHS6/6/114:04 PMRT @ThalesDream: Q1: I like the rules for deliberative dialogue from the Choices Program at Brown Univ. http://bit.ly/l1tI2g #sschat
60
MsTeacher286/6/114:04 PMI agree...each group member needs to have a specific task with clear guidelines. Espcially true for middle school kids. #sschat
61
padgets6/6/114:04 PM@historyfriend #sschat agree
62
UkiahCoachBrown6/6/114:04 PMI'm Jeff from Ukiah, CA. I'm a Libra, I like the Giants, wine, and the ending of Pulp Fiction. Want Google's model in my classroom #sschat
63
Becky_Ellis_6/6/114:05 PMRT @historyfriend: It's important not to let kids gravitate to strengths - need to use group setting to work on their weaknesses #sschat
64
Becky_Ellis_6/6/114:05 PM@UkiahCoachBrown you win for best intro tonight! #sschat
65
cherraolthof6/6/114:05 PMGoogle Docs is absolutely my favorite collaborative tool - #sschat
66
classroomtools6/6/114:05 PMI tried to teach students how to organize themselves: pick a leader, assign roles to each member, record actions and discussions #sschat
67
Dontworryteach6/6/114:05 PMRT @Becky_Ellis_: Q1. Like it when the individual component to follow up is writing, that is really important with the new common core. #sschat
68
Dontworryteach6/6/114:05 PM@bergerbe woooot! It gets so much easier next year (tho I sure hope my 3rd is even easier!) #sschat
69
Dontworryteach6/6/114:05 PMRT @historyfriend: @cybraryman1 Agreed and they should trade roles in a major project so all students learn all aspects. #sschat
70
Dontworryteach6/6/114:05 PM@MrsPopeTMS Interesting idea. May try that with my APUSH class next year #sschat
71
historyfriend6/6/114:05 PMIt's important not to let kids gravitate to strengths - need to use group setting to work on their weaknesses #sschat
72
lisamonthie6/6/114:05 PMI assigned each student a role- then the students give the grades for participation #sschat
73
lmsahistory6/6/114:05 PMA link about productive group work that might be helpful. http://bit.ly/mNoUAf #sschat
74
ancientcivteach6/6/114:06 PMFor example - Think Pair Share. Students are trained to pair with their shoulder/face partner for discussion of questions #sschat
75
cherraolthof6/6/114:06 PMRT @ThalesDream: Q1: Clearly defined roles are great on our end, but it doesn't always play out that way on their end. Personality v. ego. #sschat
76
classroomtools6/6/114:06 PM@historyfriend I'm not so sure that is always a good idea. In most non-academic settings, strengths are identified & used. #sschat
77
Dontworryteach6/6/114:06 PM@MmeNero we're actually going to focus on web/collab tech in a bit. Would love 2c ex if you have #sschat
78
gregkulowiec6/6/114:06 PMExample of Individual component after group: http://bit.ly/k5Ajxp Group work first , followed up by individual blog post & comment #sschat
79
historyfriend6/6/114:06 PMKids also need to learn how to handle a group member who is not pulling his or her weight. Important life skill. #sschat
80
jcolque6/6/114:06 PM@MsTeacher28 I have the Ss 1st make the plan on what specific tasks & guidelines they will use. This was hard for them at first. #sschat
81
LYRichardson6/6/114:06 PM@Dontworryteach Are you talking occasional groups, daily groups, sometimes groups, ongoing groups. What are the goals? #sschat
82
MmeNero6/6/114:06 PMFor tests, students create test questions together as a group and answer them beforehand #sschat
83
MsSandersTHS6/6/114:06 PM@bergerbe @gregkulowiec I think creating understanding of accountability before hand is also key in engagement #sschat
84
padgets6/6/114:06 PM#sschat students need to be taught how to be in a group with tech so much could be isolating
85
Ron_Peck6/6/114:06 PM@lisamonthie Yes, important to assign roles. #sschat
86
ThalesDream6/6/114:06 PMRT @historyfriend: Its important not to let kids gravitate to strengths - need to use group setting to work on their weaknesses #sschat
87
ThalesDream6/6/114:06 PMQ1: Clearly defined roles are great on our end, but it doesn't always play out that way on their end. Personality v. ego. #sschat
88
UkiahCoachBrown6/6/114:06 PM@dontworryteach It always comes down to different achievement levels. High end kids not patient, lower end kids not motivated. #sschat
89
cherraolthof6/6/114:07 PMhttp://bit.ly/lYH7tq Great ideas here for cooperative strategies and learning roles in group work. #sschat
90
classroomtools6/6/114:07 PMHere is an activity that teaches effective group work among other things. http://bit.ly/13gZrt #sschat
91
cobbykins6/6/114:07 PM#sschat hello everyone
92
cybraryman16/6/114:07 PM@historyfriend That was always my daughter's biggest complaint with group work in HS, College & Grad School #sschat
93
Dontworryteach6/6/114:07 PM@cobbykins hello! welcome. Our topic is Group Work tonight. Please introduce yourself & jump in! #sschat
94
Dontworryteach6/6/114:07 PMRT @historyfriend: Kids also need to learn how to handle a group member who is not pulling his or her weight. Important life skill. #sschat
95
Dontworryteach6/6/114:07 PM@LYRichardson would love to hear more on your delineation. How do u use grps in your classroom? #sschat
96
historyfriend6/6/114:07 PM@classroomtools @historyfriend But we are there to help kids learn - the tech kid should help others learn that. #sschat
97
lisamonthie6/6/114:07 PMI like using clock buddies to create unique groups each time http://www.readingquest.org/strat/clock_buddies.html #sschat
98
MmeNero6/6/114:07 PMMy classroom is set up in groups of 4, students get to know e/o and become comfortable asking e/o questions. #sschat #makinguseofspace
99
Ron_Peck6/6/114:07 PMQ1: If you have specific goals and expectations for each student, you will have more success with all students. #sschat
