TLRP: Improving pupil group work in classrooms: A new approach to increasing engagement and learning in everyday classroom settings at Key Stages 1, 2 and 3. TLRP research briefing 11
There is a wide gap between the potential of group work and its limited use in schools. Groups in classrooms are often formed without a strategic view of their purpose, and teachers and pupils have concerns about group work. This project developed principles and strategies to improve the quantity and effectiveness of group work in classes at Key Stages 1, 2 and 3. It evaluated the programme through a year-long intervention study, and assessed the applications of group work.
