Want to give Pink Time a try?
Here are the steps:
Step 1 – Introduce it.
Watch the Pink videos and describe the assignment– downloadable
Step 2 – Model it.
Show the students what you’re talking about – do the assignment yourself
Ex. One of us outlined 3 seasons of a TV show on the American University!
Step 3 – Do it.
Pick a day, cancel class, and have the students do the assignment
Step 4 – Discuss it.
Get together in class to hear about everyone’s project
Suggestion: I’ve used a 90, 20, 10 rule. 90 seconds per person to speak in front of the class. 20 minutes in small groups. 10 minutes as a big group
Step 5 – Evaluate it.
Have the students fill out the rubric – downloadable
REPEAT steps 3 through 5
Salt to taste.
(i.e., tweak this so that it works for you and for your class)
