Scaffolding collaborative learning in mathematics classrooms
MetadataShow full item record
In this practitioner-research study I investigated the quality of collaborative learning in my Year 10 mathematics class. I collected data on changes that occurred in small-group interactions before and after I conducted teamwork training. Prior to this intervention students experienced anxiety and relied on the teacher to provide reassurance and validation. After group-work skills were introduced students displayed improved self-reliance and greater productivity and satisfaction.
