Use of data to assign peer groups for a class activity
What's more, I had a chance to try out my seating chart creator. Using a recent assessment data point, I made the chart to pair a struggling student with a student demonstrating recent success. My reasoning was to elevate all conversations that would be taking place to bring more students to a higher level of understanding. The seating template, now that I've made it, can also be saved and updated with future data points. I'm also thinking of using a different structure for seating to assign students needing additional help for some more targeted intervention time at the start of some class periods. Beauty of it is students don't know why they are placed where they are but I can work more efficiently in getting to students that need help sooner based on classroom location.
I hope to post a video demo of the seating chart setup in action soon.
