Compounding Interest Group Activity

Leave a comment

This is another tool used by one of my professors for small group activities. My teacher didn’t have a name for it so I just called it the compounding interest activity. Not all students are the strongest vocal communicators and this format offers another way to form a conversation between students.

The procedure looks like:

  1. Each student has a piece of paper and responds to a prompt related to the class curriculum and ideally a prompt chosen by the group.
  2. Students form small groups of 3-4 and pass their paper in one direction and respond to the most recent student’s response on the page.

With this activity, students can write their own ideas, read articulated responses from classmates in their group, and form their own opinions.
