My Students Don’t Like Group Work | Faculty Focus

My Students Don’t Like Group Work | Faculty Focus | 6-Traits Resources | Scoop.it
Students don’t always like working in groups. Ann Taylor, an associate professor of chemistry at Wabash College, had a class that was particularly vocal in their opposition.


She asked for their top 10 reasons why students don’t want to work in groups and they offered this list (which I’ve edited slightly).

The Power of Project-Based Writing in the Classroom | Edutopia

The Power of Project-Based Writing in the Classroom | Edutopia | 6-Traits Resources | Scoop.it

As some of my readers may know, I had an awakening of sorts this past summer: I am NOT going to teach so test driven, I told myself. I'm tired of the five-paragraph essay! Where does it exist anywhere but in school? Instead, I decided, that everything I did this school year would have some connection to the world outside of school. The plan: to immerse my lessons and my classroom assessments in authenticity. And test scores be damned.

 

OK, so maybe I wasn't that confident. Nevertheless, I went ahead with my plans and devised units based on project-based writing.
