Collaborate to the Core! 2
This go-to source was created for promoting collaboration skills in students of all ages, from kindergarten through grade 12. The guide is a follow-up to its 2013 sought-after instructional resource, which shares even more tips on how to establish a collaborative environment in classrooms and provides relevant and engaging lessons, organized by subject matter and grade level.
In this content-rich, 36-page guide, you will be presented with months’ worth of activities and lessons. It also includes a section entitled “7 Tips to Your Collaborative Classroom Makeover,” which gives helpful information that will guide teachers as they consider adjusting the physical spaces in their classrooms to increase collaborative learning. It also supplies lessons in math, language arts, science, and social studies for three grade ranges encompassing the K-12 spectrum. Of course, all lessons meet the Common Core State Standards, include tips, and can be used with or without educational technology.
Let’s face it: Research shows that collaborative learning develops higher-level thinking, and students who work together understand and retain information better than students who work on their own. Furthermore, collaborative learning has become the new norm in K-12 pedagogy, and it’s just too important to students’ success to risk leaving anyone behind.
