Finally, Concept to Classroom provides examples of Collaborative Learning lesson plans. Note that these plans are typically designed for long-term projects and not for a single class period. The latter are featured occasionally in the Classroom Edition, see link farther above. In this case, a teacher is working with eight groups—but you can compose fewer as you see fit. In this model, students are grouped by the way they learn, but other configurations will also work. A tip from my own experience, choose group leaders (or have groups choose their own) who have good attendance records, because the leader may take some of the components of the activity home and if they miss the next period, you’ll have a group with nothing to do.
