Love That Teaching Idea!
Submitted: April 12, 2001
your seating arrangement is in groups, let your students choose
a team name for their group. Names can range anywhere from, "The
Battin' Brain-iacs" to "The All-Stars". Then have
your students create a team banner or penant that they all work
on together. Hang high above their desks from the ceiling. They
will sense more of team responsibility and you have a group name
to call them when it's time to dismiss or whether you need a hand
with something. Go, team, go!
idea goes very well with a "Sports Theme" in your classroom.
