Clock Partners



What to do:

Students are organised in a way to have multiple learning partners throughout the lesson.
One o'clock partner might represent those with similar abilities, while a 3 o'clock partner might be someone who has a similar learning style. Or whatever way you want to organise them!

You determine which style of partner would be best with your lesson activity and then set a clock time with the appropriate corresponding "o clock." 

Students can then meet with their  "one o clock appointment" to complete the learning task and so on... 

With this method, students aren't bound by only one partner.


Give the students appointment cards, a particular area of the classroom?

The clock partners could come from different time zones- now meet your russian partner? American partner? Can link in cross curricular links?
