    Collaboration and Teamwork are NOT the same things!

    • Your students may be working worked in groups but that doesn’t mean they’re working well.

    • Students need to recognize there are different teamwork styles (collaboration, coordination, and cooperation).

    • Teach fun, meaningful, and transferrable skills that students need to succeed in the 21st Century: at school, in relationships, at work, and in life!

    Collaboration is about working together to produce or create something. Teamwork is a bigger umbrella term that includes 3 different styles: collaboration, cooperation, and coordination. 

    Teamwork could be


    • A group of students is working on an assignment.
    • They’re all contributing to the discussion as equals.
    • Finally, they have a collective aha moment and figure out something they didn’t realize before.


    • A group of students is working on homework questions together.
    • They’re sharing information with each other.
    • But, they each are working on their own separate goals (get their work done.) 


    • A group of students is working on questions
    • The kids who are stronger tell the kids who are struggling what to do or write down on the assignment page. 
    • Someone takes on more of a leadership role and tells others what to do.

    Build a growth mindset in your students. Teach them strategies to get better at collaborating.

    Should ChatGPT be allowed in schools? (or is this cheating?)

    ARE YOU (or your students) BURNING OUT?

    What do your students struggle with the most?

    (PS - These are lifelong resources that you can use year after year.)

    Option 1: Trying (when they've given up)

    Option 2: Standing up for others (when things aren't fair)

    Option 3: Working in groups (not the same as teamwork)

    Option 4: Getting their point across (when upset and things matter)

    Option 5: Coming up with ideas (instead of copying others)

    Option 6: Thinking logically (and making informed decisions)

    Option 7: ALL OF THE ABOVE
