Summary Read First Chapter image missing

This collection of essays on diverse issues in collaborative work illuminates the next direction for the study and practice of collaboration in classrooms and research projects. The essays probe more deeply than any previous work into the political, social, and individual psychologies of students, teachers, and researchers working together. Beginning with a critique of the ideology of individualism, the authors treat classroom issues at all levels from middle school through graduate school. Advocating an affirmative philosophy of collaboration, the authors attempt to understand both its shortcomings and its successes, as illustrated in many examples of essays and comments written by students in collaborative projects.

"I like the range and variety of different perspectives and voices that emerge chapter by chapter. I very much like the overall political thrust of the bookpolitically and theoretically it is consistent and strong. The position is well articulated and a strong argument builds as one progresses through the chapters to the end." -- Esther Sokolov Fine, York University
