A community requires or invites every individual to contribute to the whole, and by doing so, find his place in the group. Being part of a community means having a place. Every person in a community knows who she is and in what way she makes the group stronger. Competition is based on scarcity. Students compete over recognition, grades, and attention. There is only so much “stuff” to go around, so students have to fight for it. The stronger students rise to the surface (their strengths match the class requirements for success) and the weaker fade into the background (their strengths are at odds with the classroom structure).
