In Venn Diagrammer, teams of students collaborate to categorize items into sets. Each student is responsible for his or her own category. When an item appears, they claim or reject it based on their individual category. Depending on the group’s responses, the item will settle into the appropriate position on the diagram. Students are challenged to think like their category, and in so doing develop a clear understanding of how venn diagrams work, and a deep understanding of the content.
This scenario is easily configurable to accommodate a limitless variety of learning topics. For example, students can diagram the attributes of organisms, number according to their common factors, or fictional characters according to their personality traits.
