Corners for Your Classroom
Corners (Kagan, 1995) helps students realize that there are multiple ways of thinking about a topic and promotes an appreciation of individual differences. It helps students to become comfortable expressing their viewpoints and exposes them to others’ reasoning processes. In addition, it provides a structure for students to interact with others that they may not normally interact with.
