Elevating the Stakes in Teaching Teamwork: Writing a Book as a Class

View File

In this session, I describe my experiment with leading a multi-disciplinary honors class that wrote a book about the history of a local trucking firm that had once been the fifth- largest freightline in the country. My students divided into teams and experienced the challenges of coordinating a semester-long creative project that met the standards of a national publisher of local and regional histories. I will discuss the benefits of this project in terms of enabling students to cope with ambiguity, understand the frustrations and triumphs of creative interdependency, and graduate as a published co-author.
