Forming multi-strengthed teams that can solve complex challenges
By Forming Strong Teams, You Are
Encouraging Collaboration: Students can learn from each other and collaborate effectively when they work in teams based on their strengths. Students seek the help of another more freely when they know other members are strong in areas they are not.
Building Confidence: When students work in teams that utilize their strengths, they feel more confident about their contributions to the team.
Promoting Deeper Learning: Working with other students with different strengths can help students learn new ways of thinking and problem-solving.
Enhancing Creative Problem-Solving: Mult-strengthed teams bring a range of perspectives and strengths to learning and projects, leading to more creative problem-solving..
Improve Communication: Students can improve their communication skills by working in teams that require them to clearly articulate their thoughts and ideas to others who may think differently.
Creating Inclusivity: Teams based on strengths can help create a more inclusive learning environment where all students feel valued and supported.
Freeing Up Teacher Time: When students work in teams, they support each other and hold one another accountable. In addition, the teacher shifts to more team feedback and coaching versus individual feedback and coaching. Since there are fewer teams than individuals, all this amounts to more time for the teacher to do more of what matters most.
