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.
