    building castles
    parents talk

    My class was studying mid-evil Europe and I assigned groups
    to build castles together. One group in particular could
    not work together but the other groups were doing great.
    They wanted me to change their group. I talked with each
    student (3 of them per group) individual to find out the
    problem and gave each suggestions on how to handle the
    problems, but I did not change the groups. The second day
    no progress. By the third day when they saw I was not
    changing groups they worked it out. We can't change jobs in
    life just because we can't get along, but giving them tools
    to work it out helped.
