How do you manage an entire class that refuses to get into diverse groups for a project (counted by numbers)? This one thing takes time away from learning and should not be a collective power struggle. Need advice ASAP.
I divided my high school students (9-12 - 80% at risk) into groups by number. They hated their teams and refused to get into groups. This period has about 4 clicks and the rest are just independently feeding off the others. It is a great project (designing a board game that takes them through the ins and outs of restaurant management), and I want them to learn about working through diversity.
