Impact on Student Success

Breakout Rooms for Cooperative Engagements

  • I had students use breakout rooms to consider counterarguments and then come back to the main room to talk about what they discussed.
      • This seemed to increase participation amoung students who would normally rely on others for answers
      • As a result, some of the students who wouldn't normally turn in essays early, turned in their argumentative ones early, indicating a liklihood that the breakout rooms were beneficial.

 

    • "Devin has a great understanding of why he is teaching the California standards, and explaining to the students the value in mastering those¬†standard."
