TCRecord for the Week of June 10th, 2002 --

“The students completed tasks without major discord,
but the classroom
lacked an atmosphere in which the students valued each
knowledge and took responsibility for their own
learning. I tried to structure
activities that forced students to be interdependent,
but what resulted

the motions....Why
didn't this well-planned unit succeed?”
