We are delighted (though not surprised) that Anne Vilen's post "What Makes a Collaborative Classroom Work?" is listed as one the ASCD Express' 10 Best Articles of 2017.

In this article, Anne offers teachers three considerations to teachers as they help students "work productively and listen to one another inquisitively":

1. Define boundaries that acknowledge all students' contributions.

2. Teach and practice protocols.

3. Harness the power of reflection and transfer of learning.

Read Anne's thoughtful suggestions on how to actually do each of these three in the article itself

Congratulations, Anne!
