Hi all! This is my first time running through Unit 4. I have my students in groups of 3-4. U4L07 Identifying User Needs has the students working in their full groups when they brainstorm an idea for an app. But U4L08 makes it sound like each individual student makes their own paper prototype based off of that same idea? Is that how you all run it?
My two concerns are that A) I have some groups built around students who struggle having some stronger partners, and they will REALLY struggle to complete this project on their own, and B) that is a LOT of materials. I have classes of around 30, so that’s over 700 index cards (plus 120 individual projects to grade).
Has anyone had success keeping them grouped up? Do you keep them in their larger groups from the previous day, or break them into pairs? Any advice would be appreciated!
