ab: Publisher’s description: One of the boys in the group responded,
“That’s so smart! That’s so smart! That’s what we should do!"
Complex instruction (CI) is a response to the paradox that group work
offers much potential but often creates circumstances where few
students seem to learn. CI is a set of ideas and strategies that
address the problems that confound group work, but that create powerful
learning for children. This book offers guidance to readers on how to
use these strategies and ideas. The authors describe the lessons they
learned using group work, explain how complex instruction helps
unsuccessful students, and analyze how to design assignments that
support group learning ‒ using group-worthy tasks ‒ giving readers
examples of good tasks and help in adapting math problems from their
own curricula.
