US Review of Books Recommended

Successful implementation and completion of group work activities requires instructors and students alike to confront challenges not present in individual work. To maximize learning, group projects need a solid lesson plan that helps students

  • understand the benefits of group work,
  • develop ground rules and assign responsibilities,
  • value everyone’s contributions, and
  • resolve potential conflicts.

Teacher, curriculum designer, and “teacherpreneur” Patrice Palmer offers thirteen easily implemented, robust group work activities formatted to foster the development of life skills. Designed with secondary and post-secondary students in mind, Palmer’s workbook takes students through the team-building process, from getting to know one another to a final evaluation of the group’s work and success.

Written in a user-friendly format, Successful Group Work: 13 Activities to Teach Teamwork Skills allows teachers to choose activities that best meet their students’ needs. Make group work a powerful addition to your teaching repertoire. You may be surprised how your students rise to meet a new challenge!
