    How do you structure groups for group work time? Do students always work in the same group? Are they grouped by ability, interest, personality…? Do you assign roles to each group member?

    Hi Laura. They are randomly grouped. I wrote a 2-part post on how I do this. First part here: http://fawnnguyen.com/deconstructing-lesson-activity-part-1/ . I’ll try to restore the comments to these posts (switched to new blog) as readers had great questions for me.
