Group Work

Summary

Discover the key issues affecting group work at primary level, as eight teachers sharing practical strategies for success in this pedagogy resource, starting with B for behaviour.

They discuss topics including how important attainment levels are when choosing groups; whether there's an appropriate time to let children work in friendship groups; and how to decide when to intervene, and when not to.

They also look at different strategies for organising groups, and ways to encourage pupils to develop group-work skills, including a rather crafty method for keeping track of how many children have contributed in a group, suitable for Jey Stage 1 and Key Stage 2.

The teachers recount their experiences of what can go wrong with group work, and how to fix it.
