“The students completed tasks without major discord,
but the classroom
lacked an atmosphere in which the students valued each
others'
knowledge and took responsibility for their own
learning. I tried to structure
activities that forced students to be interdependent,
but what resulted
was 'form without substance'--students going through
the motions....Why
didn't this well-planned unit succeed?”
