>Kent experience backs up your feeling 100%. Group work is great, but I
too feel that if a teacher is not lecturing half the time, there won't be
much learning going on during group work. Students need guidance or they
flounder (at least this is what I have seen in my Algebra I courses that I
have taught during my 22 years of teaching)
