  14. 14. <ul><li>2. Kagan structures. </li></ul>● Pupils sit in groups of four. ● The teacher has to sit the children by ability (these are their places for all lessons except Numeracy). ● During the lesson the teacher uses the structures to ensure that all pupils are interacting with one another. Lower ability pupil High-ability pupil Higher-middle ability pupil Lower-middle ability pupil
  15. 15. <ul><li>2. Kagan structures. </li></ul>● Rally Robin – pupils go round making an oral list. ● Timed pair share – pupils have one minute to answer a question or talk about a topic while their partner listens, then they swap. ● Rally Coach – pupils work in a pair on a task, taking turns to complete tasks and supporting each other. ● Quiz-quiz-trade – pupils walk around the room with a fact to teach someone else. Each time they stop they teach one another their facts, then move on. Lower ability pupil High-ability pupil Higher-middle ability pupil Lower-middle ability pupil
  16. 16. <ul><li>2.
