PLACEMAT

 

This technique requires students to be divided into groups of four.  Students gather around the Placemat Template which is organised with sections for each student to record their ideas and a central section for students to summarise their individual ideas.  First students individually think about a question and write down their ideas on their own section of the template.  Then students share their ideas to discover common elements, which can be written in the centre of the placemat template.  The purpose of the placemat technique is to provide all students with the opportunity to share their ideas and learn from each other in a co-operative small group discussion.  In doing so, students improve their oral literacy.  The benefits of the this strategy are that students have an opportunity to reflect and participate. They will extend their learning by listening to the ideas of others.  Click for more information on the placemat technique, as well as step-by-step instructions for successful implementation.
