Activities for Mixed Group Teaching - Part 2

Ruth Tarrant

22nd March 2020

Here are two more activities, drawn from the tutor2u vault, that could work for you if you are supervising sessions for mixed-year groups in your school.

The first activity draws on some ideas from Behavioural Science. It gives students a chance to explore the idea of "anchoring" and look at how their decisions and predictions are influenced by other factors. You can download the Anchoring resource here: Anchoring

The second activity is a research and making activity. Students can carry out their own research online about a building in their local area, and design a "Blue Plaque" that could be stuck on the front of that building. You can download the file here: Blue Plaque Activity
