Working in Groups

This video clip shows a group of 4 students working through several questions on a  POGIL activity.  Some points to note:

  • the video was shot in an active classroom environment, so you will hear background noise from other working groups
  • the use of student roles can be observed, in the actions of the group members and the role cards on the table
