It's easy to do. Find some pockets to tape on each student’s desk. Sometimes the Librarian at your school has some stashed away. Give each member on the team a job card. They put the job card in their pocket on the table and then they are in charge of that job for the week. I had the students change jobs weekly, but I had some teammates that changed them daily. I also had the students switch them in a clockwise fashion. This rotation was fair so everyone had a chance at a job and nobody could argue about what job they wanted next.
• They collect all papers for the team and turn the papers in to the teacher or basket.
• When passing papers out to students, give the Data Collector the papers to pass out to everyone on the team. This is a lot quicker for you, and they like it.
• If the team is working on a project together, the reporter does all the writing for the team.
• If the team is working together and need to report to the class, the reporter does the “talking” for the team.
• They collect any material the team needs to complete an assignment.
• This can include but not limited to: crayons/markers, scissors, science material, textbooks, pencils, etc.
• They help the entire team. They make sure everyone is on task and contributing to the team.
• They can help individual team members.
• They make sure everyone has their name on their paper before the Data Collector collects the papers to turn in.
• This one’s on vacation. But if a student is absent, this team member steps up and takes their place.
See you soon,
