Preparing students for college with collaborative learning

  • Here is an excellent article on inquiry based projects.  It echoes much of what we have looked at in our study..
    Education consultant Ben Johnson describes in this blog post his experience introducing a group of ninth-grade students to a collaborative-learning project. The inquiry-based project, in which students were asked to find a solution to a real-world problem, required students first be taught to work in groups, share ideas and function collaboratively. These skills, though not often taught in primary and secondary schools, are expected of students from day one in many colleges and universities, Johnson writes.
