In this video, a primary teacher explains the details of a class group challenge, the learning intentions and the roles to be assigned within the groups


Teacher: Class challenge. Les parties du corps. Repetez.

Class: Les parties du corps.

Teacher: Les parties du corps. And that is the body parts, and if we look at our learning intention for today, the learning intention is two different things. One is our social skills where we are learning to work collaboratively, collaboratively meaning working together. And the other one is to use the French words for the body parts. Right? So we're learning to use them in, maybe, a different way from the way that we've been using them in the class. Today we're going to take our active learning a wee bit further and work in teams to demonstrate this.

So, the success criteria will be that we all, in our groups, produce something to show off the vocabulary. All right? So, hints, and this is a really important one, isn't it? Take time to plan carefully. It's really, really important.

Everyone in your group must be involved. Nobody twiddling their thumbs at the side because they're not getting to do what they want. Everybody has to be involved.

And the next one down there, notice that it says agree a role for each member of the group. All right? So we've got our different members in the group and we've got our badges over here that you'll wear. So once we've decided on who's going to be in each group you have then got to sit and work out who's going to be your facilitator, your time keeper, your materials manager, recorder, quality controller and team rep. And you must work together as a team.

So think about where you're going to go and get into your groups of six. Right? OK.
