I currently have my students in rows (kinda.) But something about groups is starting to appeal to me... maybe I like the idea of having all that extra space to walk around without tripping over desks,...or maybe I like being able to see how 6 kids are doing at a glance... maybe its just because the teacher next door has them in groups and they always look so productive/busy I don't know, but I think I'd like to try it. I'd like to hear your opinions and experiences with both. Pros and cons. I'd also like to hear how you manage them i.e. how you approach chattines , looking at fellow students' work... (personally, my kids are chatty in rows anyway.) Thanks, as always for you input!!
