Partner Up – Weekly Stand #5

How often have you been doing group work in a class and noticed someone working alone? Working in groups can be exciting, but often we don’t realize that it’s not so easy for some people. This week, when a teacher asks you to pick a group, instead of jumping to work with a friend or your normal group, keep your eyes open and work with someone you haven’t partnered with before. You could say, “Hey, I noticed you don’t have a partner. Want to work with me?” or “We could really use some help with this. Want to join our group?” This simple act of inclusion could make a huge impact on that person, and you might even make a new friend. You won’t know unless you make the effort!
