The Power of Student Teams
I'm so excited to share a new book just out on using student teaming to increase the learning. In the book The Power of Student Teams, by Michael Toth and David Sousa, you will explore collaborative learning and crosswalk this strategy with SEL learning, 21st Century Skills, Habits of Mind, and more.
Having been part of the research team, I saw the impact on student learning, as students collaborated in structured, minds-on ways that included coaching and peer feedback. This strategy ensures students work as hard (maybe harder) than the teacher. And whoever does the work, does the learning! This is an easy-read guidebook for giving students the autonomy they need to engage in rigorous learning.
