Collaborative Work

 

 

 

Collaborative Work is a skill that needs practice. It only works if you work. Find creative ways for your team do get the job done.  It is a learning experience for everyone on the team. 

 

 

Your task is to find out as much as you can about your topic. You and your group will be experts on it. You will be able to answer any questions when you reach the oral presentation of the project. Since you are graded as a group make sure that every member of your team knows as much about the topic as the other. Teach each other as you learn more and more about your topic. Remember: You are both a learner and a teacher throughout your work.

(ages 15-18), Junior High or Middle School (ages 12-15), and Elementary

or Primary School (ages 6-11). You may browse through each of the above
