Helping Quartet 1.Read over the thinking questions. 2.Take 5-7 minutes to answer the thinking questions on your own. 3.As you are answering the thinking questions, I will walk around and assign you as an A, B, C, or D person. 4.Person A will have 60 seconds to share his or her answers while Persons B, C, and D are taking notes on what Person A is saying. 5.Next, Person B will share and Persons A, C, and D will take notes. 6.Person C will share next. 7.Person D will share last. 8.You will have 60 more seconds to ask any a question about what they said and clarify your notes. 9.Last Once everyone has shared, you will answer the questions on the back independently.

Helping Quartet Expectations… When Person A (B, C, or D) is talking, there should not be any other talking from the quartet. Person A (B, C, or D) must talk for the entire 60 seconds. When it is not your turn to share, you will write down notes on what Person A (B, C, or D) is saying, especially if it is something that you did not fully understand. You also want to add notes on ideas that go beyond what you previously thought. The name of this activity is HELPING quartet, so purpose is it help one another and expand your understanding of the research process. Make certain that you are being respectful towards your classmates by not interrupting them and paying attention to them when they are talking.
