It’s time to (groan) assign a group project

September 24, 2012

Do your students dread working on group projects? Do you spend too much time trying to figure out who will and won’t work well together?  We found this great visual on Math Teacher Mambo’s blog; it provides a rationale for group work and some gentle encouragement to practice communication and social skills. We think this tool is a great way to break the ice and help your anxious, shy, or reluctant students deal with the anxiety or uncertainty of working with others.

Like this idea? You may want to take a short tour of Math Teacher Mambo’s site and see other neat ideas for secondary math classrooms.
