Warm up activity in the beginning of class, or reflection towards the end of class. Can be an introductory activity, but probably more appropriate for older students or later in the semester.
Minimal: Instructions and list of questions students will choose from.
- Explain the activity to students and how much time they will get.
- Show them the list of questions and give them the list to take with them to breakout rooms (either share the slides or copy the questions into the chat box).
- Put students in groups of 3 and let them know how much time each person has to respond to the prompt of their choice. Usually around 4-5 minutes and if they finish early, they should still keep going or choose another prompt. Others need to just listen and not respond, though they could respond with gestures and facial expressions.
It is up to you whether to debrief afterwards on how it felt for students or key things they learned. You don’t want to have people reveal things that were said in the intimacy of their trio to the whole group.
Around 5 minutes to explain and give people a chance to read the prompt options; Around 12-15 minutes in each breakout room, and then any debrief time you choose to include (not necessary).
Space to share the questions (Google slides, docs, chat of the video conferencing tool) and breakout rooms.
