Teaching methods discussion for teacher students etc.

I smithed together this simple method today, the following method:

Ask 10 (or X in general) groupsorting questions, hardest first.
All who agreed with the first answer and "knew" the same answer as the questioned make a group, the group is not questioned again unless it is too big.
Ask it to some other student and yet another group can form.
Repeat with next question.
Withing the group, one at a time interpret the text read to eachother silently for later discussion purpose.
Then discuss one at a time silently in the group all the same sentence, sentence for sentence.
Questions that arise are asked to the teacher by handraising.

Can you give a real example? Questions and sample answers, etc?

Re: Teaching methods discussion for teacher students etc.

Well I was thinking, for instance in chemistry, the latest chapter questions, hardest first and that would be bound to work.
Then in math their opinion on how you solve a mathproblem, I have no concrete examples. You only sort them on how they answer, there are no certain answers in the sorting.
