To consider the pros and cons of group working

Aim

To consider the pros and cons of group working.

Evidence and reflection

Either closely observe pupils working in groups in two lessons, or reflect on group work activities that you have initiated in your classroom over the last week. Use these questions as a starting point for your reflections:

Extension

Had the pupils in the groups been guided and trained in how to work productively for learning in this way? Do you consider that this would have enhanced the group work?
