Based on the corner you are in please answer the following questions. N What are some of your WORRIES? W What are some NEEDS that you have? E What are your EXPECTATIONS?

S Any SUGGESTIONS? Turn & Talk Students take any task at hand, work on it independently and then turn and talk to a class mate to compare and contrast their understanding. It can precede the independent work if students feel that the given task is very demanding, and they need to discuss before they can work on it.

Groups Leader - makes sure everyone is on task and focused. Reporter - keeps track of discussions or decisions made by group. Writer writes down important points for sharing. Consensus Builder - helps the group reach consensus and helps summarize discussion. Wild Card helps the leader. JIG SAW

the other circle students answer. (4)After each question one circle rotates and repeat the process.
