6 Tips For Creating Effective Student Groups - TeachThought

6 Tips For Creating Effective Student Groups - TeachThought | Social Media 4 Education | Scoop.it
Grouping students is easy; creating effective student groups is less so.

The following infographic from Mia MacMeekin seeks to provide some ideas to help make group work easier in your classroom. The strength of this particular graphic is in the range of the ideas. The first tip refers teachers to Vygotsky’s Zone of Proximal development, which frames student ability in terms of a range: what they can do unassisted, what they can do with the support of a More Knowledgeable Other (MKO), and what they cannot do even with support. This is different for each student, and understanding these ranges for students can help inform grouping decisions, whether you’re using a peer instruction model, ability grouping, or another approach.

Millennials are the best educated — and worst paid — generation

Russell R. Roberts, Jr.'s curator insight, August 9, 10:04 PM

The millennial generation is in a tough spot.  It is highly educated and underemployed--a situation that will continue for years to come unless the economic mistakes of my generation are corrected.  According to reporter Claire Landsbaum, millennials are being hit hard by these factors, largely out of their control:

A slow economy; stagnant wages; crushing student-loan debt; rising federal debt; and increased spending on social security and medicare. Landsbaum says millennials are doomed to poverty unless there is an overhaul in the U.S. economy, college costs are lowered, and reform measures are imposed to reduce spending programs.  Aloha, Russ.
