Developing a sharing attitude in the classroom
Our students sometimes get the message that “real” success means being better than everyone else. However, as teachers we know that our students may learn faster and learn more by collaborating with their classmates, not competing. We need to prepare our students for a world where the emphasis is increasingly on teams that work and share together. We’ll be looking at how we can develop the knowledge and teaching skills that help our students to see – and enjoy – the advantages of collaborating.
