The 4 C's of 21st century learning for ELLs: Collaboration
from By Erick Herrmann
In the first two parts of this four-part series, we explored critical thinking and communication. Collaboration is the next topic we will explore. Any teacher who has tried putting students into groups to work together without first setting up guidelines knows that group work can be a slippery slope, with some students thriving and others not participating effectively. When working with English learners, there are special considerations when having students collaborate, including language proficiency levels and cultural backgrounds.
