- What is something you saw someone in your group do that really helped the discussion go better?
- What is something you want to continue to do or do better in your next small group to help the discussion go well?
- If there is a line on the rubric that you think you should have scored higher on, which one is it and what did you do well that I didn’t see?
It was a delight to see students name other students in their groups and specific things they had done well. Often it was the same students that I observed as good discussion drivers. Sometimes it was a student that I had missed, but when I started paying attention, I noticed his comments weren’t verbose, but when made, were concise and insightful.
So, many thanks to all of my high school colleagues for passing this new policy, and especially to those who have taken on the responsibility for making it work. It is working in my class.
