Do you have hogs and logs in your classroom? I know I have had many of them over the years. Heads Together is a cooperative learning strategy that prevents those hogs from stealing the show and the logs from doing nothing.
What’s Just Happened?
The hog likes to talk, so they are getting an opportunity to talk within their small group and even teach them. The log, whether they don’t pay attention or are too shy to talk to the whole class, will have to pay attention and/or participate because their number might be called. You have just differentiated learning, it’s a win-win!
