Students in G4.2 have been demonstrating how to be effective communicators. They have been working collaboratively on creating a games area for wet days during the lunch hour. They have had to organize multiple things such as communicating with other teachers, working out systems, preparing schedules and creating responsible strategy posters for students to refer to.
Last week we spent some time looking at what makes a successful team and how to be effective collaborators. We looked at how designated roles can sometimes hinder our learning as we only focus on what our own responsibilities are and not those of the groups. We looked at how we can effectively check in with other group members and ensure we are all working towards our goals. We also looked at what helps and hinders successful group work and created new essential agreements for the class.
