Four Corners


Making Connections

Additional Purpose(s):

Building Relationships

Learners are invited to make personal connections to prompts and share their thinking with peers.


  1. Four statements are placed on chart paper and posted in different areas of the room, allowing space for learners to gather. Learners move to the statement that best represents their thinking and have a conversation with those present about why they chose that corner. 
  2. Alternatively, pose a statement that invites learners to take a stance. Post signs with Strongly Agree, Agree, Disagree and Strongly Disagree in the four corners of the room. Learners move to the corner that best represents their opinion and share their thinking with those who chose the same stance. With this option, learners within each group can be challenged to provide a convincing argument intended to persuade other learners to change their minds and move to their group. 


Statements on chart paper OR signs that say Strongly Agree, Agree, Disagree, and Strongly Disagree.
