Day 13, 14, & 15: Introduce Rules to increase engagement.
Use rules to ensure access and rigor for all students. Try a rule such as “Confirm or Contribute”; so that students without a response can repeat another student’s response. Make sure that the person who “is ready to share” goes first and then everyone else can “confirm or contribute”. Explore rules for “passing” or what to do if someone is unprepared. Create a rule to work around any obstacle that might prevent engagement. Think of “Norms”, rules are very similar and can involve input from students like norms. However, Rules are different in that the teacher uses ultimately assigns specific rules to tailor the group learning process to meet student needs. Submit a picture of the rules.
