    I have been working a lot on classroom culture using the words expected, unexpected and getting students to think about how they want others to think about them.  I meet the kids at the door before they enter and try to get there when they are leaving.  I started my year out with Kagan, totally loved it, then switch to random grouping when I am getting them to work on the white boards.  It is a work in progress but I am enjoying the results.  I do have one class where some of the students have a bad history so they are adamant that they not be put together. I say Okay and work around it.  I liked the activities you showed on getting kids to stand and make decisions.  Do you have this resource available for download? And thanks for the group cards. I have been using a deck of cards and your group cards would be more fun.
