Annie Fetter stated on July 7 the following:

<<Yes, me again. The coaches and lecturing discussions have not gone
anywhere fast (or even slow) in the last couple of days. >>

I respectfully disagree with the second part of her analysis. Many people
have contributed suggestions about their successful activities using groups
or lectures and have provided helpful hints about what works in the classroom
at all levels. People have shared their experiences with getting students
to know each other and work together both in and out of class. After all that
is a major component of the NCTM standards, fostering team work and
discussion of math principles by the students.

I would hope the discussion would continue about group dynamics. (I agree
we could let up on the coaches).

HOW WOULD PEOPLE WHO USE GROUP DYNAMICS/COOPERATIVE LEARNING SUGGEST NEW
TEACHERS START USING IT?? WHAT ARE YOUR SECRETS FOR SUCCESS??
