Should Students Form Their Own Groups?
It's one of the questions always asked by faculty using group work. Sometimes students tell the teacher they want to form their own groups. Teachers worry about those students who aren't well connected with others in the class. Will they be invited to join a group? Or, what about that clique in the back row who already spend too much time having fun? Or, maybe it's that very bright, motivated bunch in the front row. Yes, they will work hard together, but other students could learn so much from working with them.
