  • 1. Done by: Huda Madan<br />GR5001<br />Supervised by: Dr. John Mckeown<br />I believe that cooperative Learning is one of the most positive approaches to teaching strategies. The results in my classes show that students who have opportunities to work collaboratively, learn faster and more efficiently, have greater retention, and feel more positive about the learning experience. <br />I used group work in my classes (first and third primary) especially in doing their projects ( topic of house for third and poster for first) by:<br />
    • Discuss the project with the whole class.
    • 2. Let the homogenous groups (5 to 6 students) plan their own project with their small teacher who I recommended according to her good achievements in the subject.
    • 3. Give the students chance (2 to 3 weeks) to prepare for their projects.
    • 4. Each group works collaboratively in the class to do its project and to be better than the others.
    • 5. I go around and check their work.
    • 6. Each group present or talk about its product.
    • 7. I evaluate their work.

There are very specific methods to assure the success of group work, and it is essential that both teachers and students are aware of them. It is not a way for teachers to address the needs of " gifted" students by continually putting them in charge of learning groups. It is a way for students to learn essential interpersonal life-skills and to develop the ability to work collaboratively. It is a way for students to take turns with different roles such as facilitator, reporter, recorder, etc. In a cooperative group, every student has a specific task, everyone must be involved in the learning or project, and the success of the group depends on the successful work of every individual<br />So I’m sure if I’d taken this course at the beginning of this year my strategies would be completely different.<br />
