#### Card sort: video explanation

This video explains how to do a card sort activity in class. I describe the activity and the learning outcomes in the video. Give pupils a variety of different answers to a question, such as ‘Why did America experience a boom in the 1920’s?’ Each answer is on a separate card. Pupils, alone, in pairs or groups must rank the answers based on a chosen criteria—most money, most important to society, needs money the most. Follow up activities can include: • Pupils writing reasons for their views and feeding back as a class. • Creating an essay or speech based on the ideas. • Visiting other pupils work and trying to persuade them to change their order, which can lead to discussion. • Joining another group and agreeing on a top 3. • Swapping groups and justifying their ideas in front of the class. • Ranking the ideas from the viewpoint of someone else in society such as a businessman, a parent, a tourist, someone unemployed. • A class debate based on the ideas.
