Opening the classroom to the community: Interactive groups

4.4. Type of activities

The type of activities designed for each session of interactive groups, will depend on the final goal of such session: introduce a topic, review or reinforce some contents, etc...

However, all of them will endeavor to provoke interactions between the students and students and volunteers; and switch collective type tasks with other of an individual nature.

NOTE: Interactive groups aim at provoking interactions. In individual tasks, each member of the group will be provided with his/her own template or worksheet that will be solved cooperatively after discussion between all the participants in the group. In collective activities, the whole group will work with the same resource or material.
