Quick Tip: Create Teams in Class

No matter if you teach kids or adults, using teams in class is a good way to make the class more cohesive. In addition, if you're teaching boys or trying to motivate teens, they love competition, so teams will make them want to participate more.

Using teams has many advantages. For example, if you want your students to work in groups, they will already have a group to go to. Another advantage is that they can get to know each other more if they always work with the same people. Finally, you can use teams competively. You can keep score weekly, semestrely, or yearly. By keeping score, they will be more likely to participate in class, do their homework, or pay attention to class. These are just a couple ideas you can use. Try using teams in your class and you'll be sure to think of more ideas.
