In today’s middle school classroom, grouping is an essential learning tool that enhances students’ ability to collaborate with others and deepen their own thinking. Implementing group work effectively, though, can be a challenge, especially since groups tend to end their work at “ragged” or staggered times. Creating “anchor activities” “respectful work students can do to increase their understanding” can further the class’s learning experiences during group work. Designing anchor activities to focus students’ inquisitive and creative energy increases their knowledge even during the ragged times and maintains their focus on respectful work.
