Have your students create a sociogram #antiworksheet

by Kristie Burk, DASD Coordinator of Cyber and Blended Learning

 

Instead of having your students answer questions in a worksheet…

 

…ask them to create a sociogram.  A sociogram is a specific type of graphic organizer that maps relationships between people.  It can demonstrate the connections between people – both the obvious and the subtle.

Sociograms can be created with pen or paper, but there are also some digital tools that help create one, such as Popplet.

There are many uses for a sociogram.  Teachers can use them to demonstrate relationships among characters in a book or to show how historical figures are connected. The Teaching Tolerance website even has a lesson using sociograms to help students understand how they interact — or don’t interact — with their classmates.
