The purpose of this research project was to answer this question, how can I achieve higher productivity, increase participation and engage students while working in groups in the family and consumer foods laboratory? It documents the journey of one family and consumer teacher facilitating groups in an effort to manage the classroom more effectively and motivate students. Incorporated into the research are a variety of resources related to the family and consumer science framework, cooperative learning methods and the benefits of group work. The author creates tools based off of Geoffrey E. Mills’ book Action Research A Guide for the Teacher Researcher to obtain meaningful and useful data. The primary motivation of this research was to reduce misbehaviors and develop a system that motivates, engages and increases participation while students work in groups.
