Rewarding Teamwork

mediumblue

Summary

A secondary English teacher shows how working in carefully structured mixed ability teams helps her Key Stage 3 pupils engage with their learning, and boost achievement.

At CTC Kingshurst Academy near Birmingham, English teacher Rebecca Smith allows the teams come up with their own names, and uses a scoring system involving marbles and jam jars to reward good teamwork.

At the end of every half term the team with the most points is announced as the winner and all team members are issued with a small prize.
