Structure Question; Modifying FanNPick

Post by julied » Thu Jan 31, 2008 4:01 pm

One of our teachers would like to know your recommended method for modifying Fan-N-Pick for use with a team of 5 students. She is already comfortable with using it with teams of 3 or 4 students.

The easiest way to adjust Fan-n-Pick for 5 students is to break step 4 into two parts. After the student answers the question, the next student, coaches and praises or paraphrases and praises. With teams of 5, student 4 would coach (paraphrase) and student 5 would praise.
