Here’s an idea that allows students to make independent choices and contributes to their personal growth as a life long learner.
- Do you always select the students and decide which group they need to be in?
- Are you often disturbed when you are working with a selected group? Students who are meant to be off working on their own need to see you because they have questions to ask?
Have you ever considered trying a new approach? ‘Come on Down’ is a way of creating flexible grouping that allows students to make the choice based on personal needs. I found this strategy works effectively in all curriculum areas.
