Business Studies classroom climate
Research question and sub questions
Does working in a group improve the interest of the subject for the pupils?
• Do lessons where pupils work in groups improve the level of achievement for pupils over lessons where there is no or less group work?
• Do lessons where pupils work in groups improve their behaviour and engagement over lessons where there is no or less group work?
Why I have made the above choices
The classes I have been to, show more enthusiasm for the subject when working in a group rather than working individually. Younger students seem more eager to get involved when working as part of a team. Students cause disruptions when they work alone and although there are disruptions when students work as a team, it tends to be more about the subject rather than something unrelated. I will compare the levels of disruptions in classes with individual work and classes with group work. I will also ask the students questions after the class to see how they feel about working alone or as part of a team.
My aim is to get the students interested in the subject. I think this will help create a more positive classroom climate and it will also lead to improved grades.
