Do you happen to have the steps to this structure? You can re-check them from either your Kagan texbook or a workbook from a Kagan training that you may have taken. Either book should give you the right steps regarding what partner A does/says and what partner B does/says. The steps will ensure the principles of Cooperative Learning are in place so that one student doesn't do all of the work. You may also want to check the heterogeneous pairs that have been formed to make sure the right combinations have been set. Hope this helps!

Sage-n-Scribe is intended for guided practice. That means all students should be somewhat familiar with the content. If a student makes a mistake (Sage), then the Scribe has to be prepared to providing coaching tips. It is important to review potential tips PRIOR to doing the assignment. Many teachers post those tips on the board/wall for all to see. Remember how students are to be paired (H-LM, HM-L). If many students are struggling on the assignment, that means they are not ready for guided practice. It would be important to stop and reteach.
