Taking on a role is the easiest and most effective way of establishing and embedding co-operative and collaborative group work in the primary classroom. Each child is given a specific role during group work activities which allows them to feel important and valued. You can use the resource to develop the confidence of quieter children in your class, as well as a tool for developing the listening skills of the more dominant children in your class. The results of using this complete package resource will be positive, productive and effective group work where the children co-operate and collaborate without the intervention of the class teacher!
