In the Kagan Cooperative Learning book it mentions the structures of Listen Right!, Listen-Sketch-Draft, Listen Up!, Share N Switch, and Show Me! as ways to review and process information. However, I am unable to find the directions for any of these strategies. Can you assist me with the directions for any of these structures?

The stop structures from Day 1 of the Cooperative Learning Workshop are great for having students process information. RallyRobin, Timed Pair Share, RoundRobin, StandUp HandUp PairUp are structures I used almost every single day to help students empty their working memory and to digest the information being presented to them.
Kagan doesn't post steps to the structures on the discussion board. Structure steps appear in two main places: handouts from workshops and published books. For example, Listen-Sketch-Draft is in all of the Balanced Literacy books. We do "Show Me" in Day 2 of cooperative learning. Hopefully you will be able to experience the structures in one of our courses!
