Working In Teams

Working in teams can be a challenge but also offer many rewards. Developing the skills necessary to work effectively in teams is the focus of the third lesson plan in the Getting Started Module designed for middle schoolers. Participants engage in several activities that help them identify the traits and goals that they value. They then develop guidelines that will permit those with different goals to work together successfully.
