Partner Work in Math {and life}

One thing I have tried to really focus on with my math students is partner work! Our new math series, Trailblazers, focuses a lot on working with partners and groups. Also, my classroom is made up of 17 students, 7 of special needs, so it is very important everyone works together. Our groups are carefully picked and the goal is for students to learn from each other.

Every time a partner activity is in a lesson, we review this poster by all reading it out loud and try to focus on one number (even though they are really working on all)

Thanks for reading!

  1. It is so important to teach students how to work in a group. Every now and then I'll give my class a group work self-assessment rubric, and it is so interesting to see how they evaluate themselves.
