Star Buddies

A simple collaborative learning organisational template for the classroom.  This can be used to support the organisation of evidence-based collaborative learning interventions, such as peer tutoring, reciprocal teaching, tuakana/teina etc.  Just write a student's name in the middle of the star and names of his/her peers at each point of the star.  Start Buddy 1 becomes their default buddy for everything else (e.g. Art, PE, EOTC trips, Assembly etc.) outside of those situations stated on the other star points.  Please see the first star on the template page for an example.  Using this visual prompt, students get to know their 'buddy' for each part of their day very quickly and it provides structure and certainty for them in collaborative learning contexts.  Looks best printed on bright coloured paper.
