How would you coach/encourage some strategies that might reduce the fear for that person? What are the implications for the student if collaborative group work is not encouraged? What are the impacts to future employers if the skills for collaborative work are not trained in our schools? oCoaches and coordinators distributed so that there is at least one facilitator for 12 groups that have been pre-assigned.
