Group Work



Starting with B for behaviour, this programme takes an alphabetical journey through the key issues affecting group work at secondary level, as 13 teachers share their strategies for success.

The problems and strategies they discuss include whether attainment levels are important in choosing groups, when or if it is appropriate for students to work in friendship groups, when to intervene and whether there are ways of controlling the inevitable noise.

They also debate different strategies for organising groups and how to encourage students to develop group work skills. The teachers talk of their own experiences of what can go wrong with group work, and how to fix it.

This programme is part of a series where secondary teachers share their tried and tested strategies for success in the classroom.
