  7. Directions for  Activities for Interaction

    Slide 7 - Directions for Activities for Interaction

    • Stay and Stray
    • 1. Put students into groups of 3 to 5 people in different areas of the classroom
    • 2. Provide a question that students know a lot about (different question per group)
    • 3. Give them time to think and share aloud within their group
    • 4. Have the group generate a poster with words, pictures, phrases and/or sentences that capture key information about that question. Each person needs to be involved in making and being able to explain the content.
    • 5. Randomly assign one person to “stay” and share the groups’ work as the rest of the members and groups rotate or “stray”
    • 6. Repeat rotation- the person who stays this time may be a new person or the previous one…
    • *Works nicely with “numbered heads”
    • Find Someone
    • Assign a question for students to discuss
    • Provide time for students to process independently
    • Ask students to “find someone” with the same characteristic. For example: Sole partner
    • Students find their partner “mate” and share
    • *Make a list and put in a can for easy use
