Breakouts To Energize Brains and Boost Achievement

Grouping Structures. Grouping structures are structures specifically designed to efficiently move students into groups. They do not have an academic focus. Once students are in their breakout group, an interaction structure may be used to have students interact over the content. To form groups of three, the teacher may use Find Your Number or Find A Different Number, but tell the students to form groups of three. Sometimes when students are in pairs, we want to form groups of four. At times, we want teams to group with other teams to compare answers, exhibit and explain projects, and/or give each other feedback. Kinesthetic Symbols: Harnessing the Power of Gesturing.

I had a high population of second language learners in my classroom and found that Kinesthetic Symbols had a big impact on helping students raise their test scores. Amal Mahmoud Al Shariti at Liwa International School in Al Ain, Abu Dhabi, United Arab Emirates, teaches her English-as-a-second-language students a kinesthetic symbol for each vocabulary word. 56 Kagan Co op Structures. 56 Kagan Co op Structures with links. 15 16 Classroom Strategies.

Increase Student Interaction with "Think-Pair-Shares" and "Circle Chats"

" The think-pair-share is a very simple, yet effective technique that allows ELL students time to process their thoughts — often in two languages — which takes more time. To understand how this works, imagine you are an ELL student and the teacher has just asked the class a question such as, "Why did the ancient Egyptians create pyramids? " Immediately students around the room shoot up their hands and offer answers. As an ELL student, you are still searching your memory banks to translate the words "ancient" and "pyramids.
