Cooperative Learning:  New Teams

New Teams:  Students have new table teams, solo (“bubble”) work spots, and shoulder partner work spots for the next 6 weeks.  We are very intentional in spending time within teams, partners, and as a whole class to build relationships which help give students the “will to cooperate.”  As we all know, working with others (regardless of friendship level) is a critical life-long skill!
