Abstract:This study describes an exploratory analysis into processes of teenagers learning teamwork. In qualitative interviews, the adolescent participants reflected on their work within groups at a residential summer camp. Grounded theory methods were used to provide preliminary knowledge of how teenagers learn teamwork through interactions with their peers. Three conscious processes were identified: assimilating peers’ actions, co-constructing learning with peers, and adapting peers’ advice. This study suggests a broader pattern across the three categories: first, there was an initial challenge to smooth team functioning, then the teens reflected and developed a personal understanding of the situation, and finally they determined an intended course of action.
