Kagan Strategy

Big picture

How does it work?

"Showdown is a team structure. Students work alone to answer a question and then have a "show down" with their team to share their work and discuss."

Materials Needed:

- One set of question cards per team AND answer key

- Paper and pencils OR dry erase boards and markers

*If students need support on accountable talk, here is a great anchor chart to use with the class before starting this structure!*

How can I differentiate?

Each group could work through a different set of question cards based on student readiness and needs.
