Should I be assigning partners for Unit 3 that will work together throughout the entire unit? I am teaching in a hybrid environment where some days one “cohort” of students is in the building and other days the second “cohort” is in the building. Our classes are synchronous with both virtual and in-building students “attending” class at the same time.
Suggestions? Should I attempt to have students work in partners or should I have them work independently? Should I make partners within the same “cohort” so that they can at least “see” each other on some days? I would love to hear from anyone working in a similar environment.
I should mention that I have 24 students in a class so that would mean using 12 breakout rooms unless I group them by cohort. Is this even feasible? We have to use Google Meet.
