Re: Group Projects?

I just had pairs do collaborative works after studying Wyland and how he collaborates with another artist to do an above/below work (7th grade)
I also had 7th graders "build" junque sculptures with the people at their table...they had to bring stuff from home and create an object d'art a la Nevelson.
8th graders worked on a pair project in which they studied a period in art history and wrote a 3 minute news presentation that includes events of the time and a work they created in that style. My 8th graders also work in a group for an architecture unit.

  There has been a fair bit of bullying going on at my school the last little while. The adminstration wants the teachers to do more group projects that focus on co-operation and understanding.

  One sample project included each student creating a clay figure that represented themselves. Then all the students at that tabel had to place their piece on a paper island. All the students in that group then had to create an island that included each item and created a theme.

  Ok so now I am stuck. I admit the my projects tend to focus on individuals more. Any ideas gang? This is for middle school by the way.
