Group activities can be really enjoyable if teacher librarians are aware of the best management strategies to use. Chaos and high decibel noise can take over in a hurry if proactive steps aren’t taken in getting the groups started. For example, instructions to simply discuss without producing a tangible product can prove to be a disaster. Our friends at Edutopia, offer strategies, tips and tools that enhance group engagement while curbing the chaos. Hmmmm….some of these strategies could work in librarian working groups too!
