Research Role-Playing

You can help teachers by facilitating their playing different roles in a group.

  • Form groups with six teachers.
  • Hand out strips of paper that define the role for each person in the group:
  • Have each person read the same article about one research topic and highlight points based on their role.
  • Have people report their findings to the others in their group from the role they are playing.
  • Make sure someone is a recorder and gathers the information from the group to give to you.
