Table of Contents
This ASCD Study Guide is designed to enhance your understanding and application of the information contained in Productive Group Work, an ASCD book written by Nancy Frey, Douglass Fisher, and Sandi Everlove and published in November 2009.
You can use the study guide before or after you have read the book, or as you finish each chapter. The study questions provided are not meant to cover all aspects of the book, but, rather, to address specific ideas that might warrant further reflection. Please note that there are no study guide questions associated with Chapter 7: "Getting Started: Questions and Answers."
Most of the questions contained in this study guide are ones you can think about on your own, but you might consider pairing with a colleague or forming a study group with others who have read (or are reading) Productive Group Work.
