How do we experience working together during a project?
When students are given freedoms to make autonomous choices in the classroom, their conversations become uncontrollable –the only way real conversation can be. Voice can be an incredible asset in the classroom, but it can also pose a real threat to the learning environment, when perspectives differ and ideas come into conflict. Just speaking is not enough; we must also learn to listen, so that we can feel heard. My action research project focuses on the often hard-to-understand ways in which students interact with one another during loosely structured “project time.” My project aims to present a deep analysis of the question: how do we experience working together during a project?
