High Impact Strategy #1:Cooperative Learning

LEARNING PERFORMANCE

Student A - The 'Mean' - calculates the mean.Student B - The 'Median' - calculates the median.Student C - The 'Mode' - calculates the mode.Student D - The Coordinator - monitors the work and makes sure everyone is on task.The coordinator will also be presenting the work.*Note - Everyone will need to understand the terms, so each group member will have to teach the other group members their understanding of their part.

Student can express mean, median, and mode as a single number by pulling data from a line plot.

Standard : CCSS.MATH.CONTENT.6.SP.A.3Recognize that a measure of center for a numerical data set summarizes all of its values with a single number, while a measure of variation describes how its values vary with a single number.

Assigning Roles to Group Members

Coordinator

Median

Mode

Mean

Together they will brainstorm, thinking of what type of data they want to use (ex: athletes' scores, prices of coffee, etc.)

Then they will present their findings as a team and explain how they worked together

Each student will be accountable for their group's success.

-Marzano states that there is a 23 percentile gain with students participating in coorperative learning.-"Positive Interdependence." Everyone has a mutual goal-Interpersonal and small-group skills are in place, including communication, decision making, conflict resolution, and time management.-The group fails/succeeds together.-Group Discussion. Some students will learn better from other students.

REASONING

All students will have a role and will be working on whole as a team. All levels of students can be grouped. As part of the assignment, the students have to communicate and teach each other the context. A great role for higher level students would be 'The Coordinator', that way he/she could monitor their group members' work, and help them when they get stuck. This would be a great review for the higher levelled students.

DIFFERENTIATION

What's a band without roles?
