What's Inside

Find out how to make group work truly productive by increasing the complexity of the tasks and encouraging extended interaction and productive argumentation (not arguing). Fisher and Frey give practical tips for setting the stage for meaningful discussions among students and provide a list of planning questions to support collaboration. You'll also get a thorough run-down of quality indicators of productive group work and a glimpse into productive group work in a real-world scenario.
