Group Activity


Heather Jarrell, an Instructor at CSU Stanislaus, designed a peer-to-peer engagement and active learning activity for use during a synchronous session. Working in groups, students identify distinguishing characteristics of periods of globalization throughout history. Students are placed in Breakout Rooms in Zoom, with each group completing one of five Jamboard pages containing sticky notes labeled “Fact” that they fill in with pertinent features of their globalization period, after which the entire class is quizzed on each globalization period using Zoom Polls based on the facts submitted by each group.
