An important piece of our pedagogy is our emphasis on collaborative learning. Our extensive research shows peer-to-peer instruction and discussion is critical to student learning. It helps internalize concepts and creates a natural fluency with academic vocabulary when students use it with each other.

During the webinar, Abbey and Brittany shared some ideas for digitizing the T-Graph to promote social skills of teamwork and collaboration during distance learning. Click here for some additional tips and tools for the T-Graph and Team Tasks.
