Group work in the modern language class
MetadataShow full item record
Before 1980, group work was a rare feature in the classroom. More recently, it has become recognised as a valuable method of teaching and is now widely used. In Modern Language teaching, group work is so widely accepted that most recent methodology or course books provide plenty of ideas of tasks for groups work. It constitutes an essential part of classroom management. Part One of the project is a review of the relevant literature. I define group work and look at its various characteristics. Part Two describes the approach and method of research. I then present my results, obtained from classroom observations and questionnaires given out to teachers and pupils in the two schools, and finally comment on my findings.
