When giving group work to students in class, assign students roles and have them introduce themselves to ensure your students feel comfortable asking each other for help.

  • For instance, assign students to roles where other students feel comfortable asking them for help, such as group leaders.
  • Have students introduce themselves before working together in a group so they are more comfortable and open to collaboration.
    • Tell students who should introduce themselves first to avoid more talkative students speaking first.
  • Doing this reiterates the confidence you have in your students. In addition, students may learn better from peers.
