Question: What is a successful group?
Answer: “Found that teachers and students have very different perspectives on what constitutes a successful group.” M Tebo-Messino. 1987. P. 428.
Comment: Since this is an annotated research summary, it doesn’t spell out the differences between the teachers’ and the students’ point of view. However, asking the same question of your students and contrasting their point of view with yours should lead to a fruitful discussion. RayS.
