Work on projects to promote collaborative learning Back to list

Try out projects that can help students learn to work as a team.

Students need time to get used to working in a group and taking responsibility for a final product. Whether the activity is to make a radio programme or giving a presentation about a book or a film, roles need to be carefully assigned and the work of the group closely monitored.  

You can find plenty of examples of projects on Teacher’s Corner. Students may collaborate on presenting a famous legend, work cooperatively to produce a poster to celebrate World Environment Day or they may even create their own class policy on Cyberbullying.

Working as a team needs practice and guidance. Follow some of the key points in the article 5 ways to increase success in group work. Why not start a group project with your class today?
