TLRP: Improving pupil group work in classrooms: the SPRinG project newsletter 1
This Newsletter describes the rationale and preliminary key findings of the SPRing Project. The research shows that group work is a powerful but underused strategy that teachers can use to raise educational attainment; increase active engagement in learning; and improve classroom behaviour. This large-scale project has developed and evaluated a new approach to group work in primary and secondary schools. It is part of the Teaching and Learning Research Programme and was funded by the Economic and Social Research Council. The findings of this five-year study are already helping to shape classroom practice not only in England and Scotland but in the Far East and the Caribbean.
