  13. 13. Five Phases of Cooperative Learning  In the “engagement” phase, the teacher “sets the stage” for the activity presented.  In the “exploration” phase, students work on the “initial exploration of ideas and information.”  In the “transformation” phase, this is where the students gather all of their thoughts about the information.  In the “presentation” phase, the students present their information to the other students.  In the “reflection” phase, the students “analyze what they’ve learned and identify strengths and weaknesses in the learning process that they went through.”PDT JAVED IQBAL ANJUM Your Logo
  14. 14. Generalizations from the Research on Cooperative Learning1. Organizing groups based on ability levels should be done sparingly.2. Cooperative learning groups should be rather small in size.3. Cooperative learning should be used consistently and systemically, but should not be overused.4. Student participation, teacher encouragement, and student- student interaction positively relate to improved critical thinking.PDT JAVED IQBAL ANJUM Your Logo
  15. 15. Food for Thought One of the most exciting developments in modern education goes by the name of cooperative learning and has children working in pairs or small groups. An impressive collection of studies has shown that participation in well-functioning cooperative groups leads students to feel more positive about themselves, about each other, and about the subject theyre studying Students also learn more effectively on a variety of measures when they can learn with each other instead of against each other or apart from each other. Cooperative learning works with kindergartners and graduate students, with students who struggle to understand and students who pick things up instantly. PDT JAVED IQBAL ANJUM Your Logo
