28 Working in Learning Groups AKA Support Groups You are responsible for your own job and the results of the group.If you have a question, ask your “support buddies”.You must be willing to help if a support buddy asks you for help.You may ask for help from the teacher after the entire group agrees on a question.
29 Moving Around the RoomYou must ask permission unless you need a tissue. Get your tissue and immediately return to your seat.Do not ask during a classroom discussion unless it is an emergency.Use your best judgement and your manners!
