4. Teacher behaviour before, during and after grouping.

4.1. Before: We will want to follow an 'engage-instruct-initiate sequence. Because students need to feel enthusiatic about what they going to do. Our instructions will involve a demostration. The important thing about the instructions is that the students should understand and agree of what the task is.

4.2. During: We have a number of options. We could stand at the front or the side of the class and keep an eye om what is happening. Another alternative is monitoring. Where we go round the class, watching and listening pairs or groups.

4.3. After: When pairs and groups stop working together, we need to organise a feedback. We want to let them discuss what ocurred during the group work session and add our own assessments and make corrections. A constructive feedback on the content of student work can greatly enhance students' future motivation.
