Interactive Groups (IGs) were implemented biweekly in Italian and English teaching.

Impact and successes

The students are at ease in dealing with difficult tasks because they know that working in a group will help them to tackle the problem.

Teachers noted that IGs can be used to help the students participate and learn more. Students with learning difficulties within the group take on different roles than usual, and they started to participate more in the class activities by being more active.

Lessons, learning and recommendations

The students feel more at ease and supported in their learning. Students feel like they’re in a safer space where they can share their weaknesses openly. Parents and teachers would like to continue the process.
