Student Collaboration

I was recently reading the September/October 2022 issue of “Science & Children” a publication of the National Science Teaching Association.  In this issue, I read the Methods and Strategies column, written by Kathleen Easley and Jamie Lehto.  They wrote a column entitled, “Let’s Work Together.”  

In this column, they addressed five research-based strategies that support successful collaboration:

1.  Establishing a culture of collaboration

2.  Setting clear expectations

3. “Making the rounds”

4.  Class conversations

5.  Mediating conflict
