2. ndividual & Group Accountability

a. How will roles be assigned?

Each member must demonstrate master of the content Each member is accountable for the whole group's learning and/or work

Students will discuss the group roles and assign the roles themselves. Students will use their active listening and encouragement skills to decide how they will share leadership roles within the groups. Students will be given a list of roles and work together to figure out who will take on which role.
b. How will you hold each student Individually Accountable for learning?

Each student will be held accountable by writing a detailed description of the role they took on during the time of the project.
c. How will you hold each student responsible for the whole groups learning?

After the project has been turned in, students will evaluate the work that their peers executed. This reflection and peer-evaluation will require students to provide feedback in different areas, including collaboration, teamwork, leadership, etc.


Group Processing

How will you guide meta-analysis of individual and group processing? a. Observation: While students work within their neighborhoods,

The group self-assesses their productivity Reflect on their experience Makes decisions about how to be more productive and to foster effective working relationships

they will be given a checklist that monitors the compliments and positive feedback given while they work. The group facilitator will be given the responsibility of filling out the checklist. There will be a new checklist every time the group works together.
b. Reflection: Halfway through the project the neighborhoods will

reflect on how their project is going. They will be given a review sheet to follow. They will also again reflect at the end of the project self assessing their contribution to the final project and peer assessing.
c. Goal Setting: The group will help the facilitator in creating a time

chart for when they want to complete certian aspects of their poster. i.e.I want to be done planning the design of the poster after 15 min.. They will also set goals for what they want to have completed at the end of each work day given to the class.


Social Skills

Face-to-Face Interaction

a. Grouping

Members promote each other's success Students explain to one another what they have or are learning and assist one another with understanding and completion of assignment When group members are in close proximity to interact in ways that promote continued progress.

Grouping will be decided randomly so that students can continue developing their social skills by working with their peers that they may not communicate with on a daily basis. All students have a card with their name on it, and cards will randomly be pulled to decide who is in which group.
b. Room Arrangement

The desks will be arranged into clusters or small groups. Each group area will have 4 desks, one for each group member. The room will have materials on a desk available for students who need poster boards, markers, etc.
c. Group Seating

There are 4 students per group, and each group will be in a specific area of the room in a cluster. The desks in each group will all be facing each other so that the group members can properly adhere to the 4 Ls of group work- Lower your voice, Lean towards your partners, Look at your partners, and Listen attentively. 6.
