Students are placed in groups and each person is given a number (from one to the maximum number in each group). The teacher poses a question and students "put their heads together" to figure out the answer. The teacher calls a specific number to respond as spokesperson for the group

According to Jacobs and Hall (2004: 2) defines Numbered Heads Together encourages successful group functioning because all members need to know their group’s answers and because when students help their groupmates, they help themselves and the whole group.
