Problem Student Case Study
  • Your cooperative groups are working on long-term
    projects which will end with presentations to the
    class. You have given them class time to plan
    and organize. One group is upset because Stella,
    one of the members is a chronic absentee. She is
    continuing to attend school but only 2-3 days a
    week, and she has not done any of the work the
    group has asked her to do. Since part of the
    grade will be based on how well everyone in the
    group participates, the group is afraid that
    Stella will bring down the group grade. They
    want Stella out of the group.
  • HO case study

21

In Your Group RANK THE RESPONSES FROM 1
(FIRST) TO 6 (LAST)
  • Let the group decide what they want to do.
  • You sit down with the group (without Stella) and
    discuss some ways to get Stella involved at this
    time.
  • You sit down with the entire group (Stella, too)
    and set some firm guidelines for continued
    participation.
  • You call Stella in your office only and discuss
    why she needs to participate in the group.
  • You allow Stella to work alone and do a
    presentation by herself.
  • You (instructor) remove Stella out of the group.
    resulting in a 0 for Stella, since this is a
    group presentation
