It's that easy - seriously! We've been slowly sharing our strategies in posts (partner coach, turn and talk, round robin), along with anchor charts that we place in the room (great for teaching the strategy and for refreshers).
But, one of the easiest ways to use cooperative learning is to have your classroom tables/desks labeled for the jobs! It really reminds you to use the strategies. Another great thing about labeling the student spots is that they can rotate or exchange seats and always know their job!
All you need to do is print these labels and decide how you want to attach them to your desks and labels! To print them download HERE or click on the picture!
