Providing enrichment for quick-working students
One problem with timed group activities is that some students, or some groups, will finish early and get bored waiting for the others to catch up.
Where this is likely to happen, Davinia Hernández Leo and colleagues suggest adopting an approach from ‘gifted and talented’ education and providing ‘enrichment activities’: not just more of the same, which effectively penalises students for working well, but activities which will (a) extend their experience, (b) develop higher-order thinking, or (c) encourage them to pursue areas of their own choice.
