Give One Get One Protocol

Here’s how it works: Students draw a line down the middle of their paper. One one side they write “give one” and the other side says “get one.” The teacher asks a question or makes a statement, and students respond by writing their answers/reflections in the “give one” column.

Then students are put into groups where, one by one, each students shares what he or she wrote in that column. Whenever a student hears an idea/question/response that he or she didn’t have in the “give one” column he/she adds it to the “get one” column.

The purpose is to share ideas or questions about a specific topic so students hear various voices and opinions while also sharing their own.
