Although I'm not against group learning in principle, I'm a little skeptical
about teachers who use this technique almost exclusively. Is this not just
another form of crowd control? The teacher prepares all the materials in
advance and just sits back and facilitates. Is this method popular because,
perhaps, teachers are afraid to turn their backs on their students? Is this
just a refinement or the old worksheet method of teaching? Its something to
think about.
