Description Group work has, for many years, been seen as an essential part of an effective English classroom, providing important opportunities for talk and for developing thinking. Yet recently some teachers have been questioning its value. This course will provide an opportunity to reflect on the value of group work, when and how it works best and how to improve your own practice. You will go away with strategies and resources to use and share when you get back to school. The course will draw on the experience and evidence derived from working with two Year 7 classes for EMC’s project: ‘The Value of Group Work’
