Reflection: Writing Across the Disciplines Butterfly Bush Visitors - Section 3: Research


At the second grade level, working with partners serves many different purposes.  If you pair up a higher achieving student with a lower achieving student, the stronger student can help the other one, especially with reading.  Also it creates a feeling of partnership in the workload.  The higher achieving student also benefits by learning the information even more proficiently. As we all know, if you teach something, you seem to learn it even better.  Working in collaborative teams also fosters a feeling of respect and empathy for others.  Plus the children find anything more exciting when they work with a friend. In this task they will be using grade appropriate media to obtain scientific information to help them learn about the natural world.
