How true is this? Every single teacher — scratch that — person I’ve ever shown this to laughs hard and says they can identify with either being or hating one of the people in this picture from the movie, The Hangover.
Yet, schools are still assigning group work, and even moreso now that Project Based Learning is on the rise. With groupwork being an important hinge to making PBL work in our classrooms, what are you doing that ensures that the situation above isn’t happening in your classroom?
I’d love to hear your ideas for successful group work and my next post will share some of the ideas that I’ve been able to gather and practice to pretty decent success my students and I had over a half-decade of experience learning and teaching in a PBL school.
Looking forward to seeing your ideas!
