Authentic Learning Strategy:
Create group working norms with learners
Creating group norms as the outset of any collaborative learning experience supports learners to work well together and provides the teacher with an anchor for providing feedback to learners on their collaboration. These norms should be co-created with learners. After practicing with learners to create group norms as a class, asking them to create their own team contracts can help them own their own norms and figure out the best way to work together as a group and leverage each others’ strengths.
