Educating from a Group Perspective: What, Why and How.
Porter, David B.
Education is a team sport. Current developments in cognitive, social and educational psychology suggest the potential pedagogical value of adopting "a group perspective." Over the last few years, the Air Force Academy has examined the effects of several classroom interventions intended to develop and harness the power of groups to improve students' educational experiences and attitudes. In general, results suggest these interventions enhanced overall academic achievement, reduced within-section performance variance, increased student interest in subject matter, and helped establish mutual respect and positive relations among students.
