Managing Small Groups to Meet Psychological and Social Demands of High School...

DRL 1252339

2016 (see original presentation & discussion)

Grades 9-12

Successful group work and meaningful science learning only take place when students collectively construct a triple problem solving space as they work on inquiry and engineering design tasks in high school biology. The group must attend to and develop the “cognitive” dimension (the problem to be solved), the “social/relational” dimension (the challenges based on social interactions within the group), and the “affective” dimension (the emotional life of the group). Results suggest that all three dimensions have to be collectively developed and maintained during group work. If groups fail to manage any of the three collective elements, group collaboration is unsuccessful and science learning is minimal.
