This week we have been learning about two new strategies / approaches called Reciprocal Reading and Maths Problem Solving.
We got put into a group of seven, and chose one job each such as the Summariser, The Boss and the Progressionator etc. Then we have to decide as a group what you have to do in that job. The next 2 days we watched a teacher group as an example, on the third day we tried it with our own group. These are some pictures of us reading and discussing with our group.
Maths problem solving
In Maths we have the same group as Reading, but we don't have 6 jobs we only have 1- The Foreman and the roll for the foreman is to tell everyone in the syndicate their group's answer to the maths question. During the Problem Solving session their job is to also see how many people in their group got the answer and strategy correct, as well as help discuss with the group how they got that answer. The Maths questions get progressively harder as the week goes on.
