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!

  • Use this when students get stuck in certain roles: being aggressive, passive, or a mindless follower!

  • Teach important lessons if you ever need to fill a period.

  • Use this right before you start a group project to get more out of your students.

  • Use it again during the start of a new unit, semester, or year to set the tone.

  • Leave the detailed lesson plans for a substitute teacher to use.

The best time to plant a tree was 25 years ago. The second best time is now.


  • Includes examples of collaboration to help your students see the difference between just co-operating, or coordinating others, and real collaboration.

  • The teamwork styles handout is DIFFERENTIATED for different abilities in your class.

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.
