Successful Strategies for Guided Math Groups: Cooperative Games

Posted on February 8, 2013. Filed under: Uncategorized | Tags: |

Marzano (2001) found that Cooperative Learning moves student achievement.  During guided math groups students often work together to solve a problem.  Remember that when students are working on a problem there should be roles.  Have someone be the interpreter, someone be the illustrator, someone solve the problem one way and another person to double check the work.  Watch how the children work together in the group to solve their problem and take notes on how they are interacting.  When necessary, give prompts and coach students through the problem.

Cooperative Groups are great to do not only in small guided math groups but also in math workstations as well.
