Teacher Perspectives: Grouping

Bill Mittlefehldt: In grouping geography students for working on teams for the nine-week project, I generally let the kids self-select. Other years I arranged for gender mixing and some other learning style characteristics, but it’s kind of a wash, so I’ve found that by letting the kids pick people they want to work with, you get a little better result in the long run.
