S.O.L.A.R. - cooperative learning directions

Ms. Townsend uses S.O.L.A.R. strategy to guide students in cooperative learning activities.

S - Silently listen to your partner
O - Orient your body to the speaker
L - Lean in and use a quiet voice
A - Affirm listening with body language
R - Respond when the speaker is finished with a reflective list

I love these concrete strategies that help students to achieve the best performance when engaged in cooperative learning.
