I was on Twitter today, and I came across the idea of group roles. Thinking more about it all day, this is what I came up with. Seven roles that clearly define what is expected of the student to lead the group to success. At the bottom of each role is a “+General Contractor”. This is to show that everyone must pitch in, over and above their individual roles, to get the project done. This is a short post, but one that I hope will help other educators with running groups in their classrooms. Below is a link to a PDF file. If you have ideas for other roles please feel free to add in the comments, and I will redo the PDF for all.
Thanks and Happy Collaborating!
