    What do you think, Dawn?


    The way a teacher plans and carries out the lessons makes it effective.


    That is all I can think of but I know there are more. HELP!!


    To make a plan truly effective you need involvement. The students often like to work in two's, three's or four's. When they are working in groups it's best to try to have 1 excellent student, 1 slow student and 2 in the middle. If the group gets a group score they will all be bringing the slow student up to standard. Each student needs to understand what to do, keep on task and see the results. Working interactively can increase the noise level at first, but as long as you can see they are all keeping to the task, it's worth it!

    Usually I did one example for all, explaining as I went. Then students explained the next time what I did and one brave student would do it and explain it all alone. This made it surer that everyone understood what to do.

    Good luck! Don't be afraid to be creative, within the structure. Each group make have a different makeup and it won't take long to see what works best.
