Being Intentional - the Why?
Teams of Four
- Shoulder Partner
- Face Partner
- Diagonal Parter
- Desk 1 - High Student
- Desk 2 - High Medium Student
- Desk 3 - Low Student
- Desk 4 - Low Medium Student
This grouping minimizes the interaction between the highest and lowest students of the group. However, it does promote peer coaching from a High to a Low (Shoulder Partners), and collaboration closer to performance levels between a High to a High Medium and a Low Medium to a Low (Face Partners).
A1: Make one team of five.
Q2: I have two extra students?
A2: Make two teams of 3.
Q3: I have several students absent?
