In order for group work to be a positive and productive learning experience, it is essential that all members of the class understand and comply with the following five norms of cooperative group behavior:
   Everyone has the responsibility to listen carefully and with respect to one another in the group.
   Everyone has the responsibility and the right to contribute to the group task.
   Everyone has the responsibility and the right to ask for help from the group when needed.
   Everyone has the responsibility to help others in the group when asked.
   Do not change your mind unless you are logically persuaded. (Reach a consensus, not majority rule.)
