    One thought on “Group Dynamics in the Language Classroom”

    1. Although I read this book with the thought of using it in the language classroom, I found there are far-reaching benefits for all kinds of groups. It really taught me a lot about the growth patterns of groups and reminded me that conflict is not necessarily a thing to be avoided.

There are many important lessons to be learned from this book to be used [...]

    2. This book came at a perfect time for me--one year out of grad school and looking for a refresher on the power of group dynamics. Such a great balance of clear, theoretical information and practical activities to try. I'll be using this as one of my manuals this summer.
