How will creating a nontraditional classroom and instilling teamwork affect learning?

Wayne Caparoon, a middle-school administrator and teacher, says: "We have the potential to reach more kids. When we facilitate learning in a nontraditional classroom, we see students who don't usually take the lead come forward and be leaders. We discover they have great organizational skills, social skills-important qualities that we don't see with traditional classroom assignments."
