    • Cooperative learning is where teams of students, with various abilities and skills, work together on different activities to learn about a subject.
    • Groups will stay together for weeks, months or years.
    • Groups should be 2-5 people in size.
  • 5. The Five Cooperative Learning Skills
    • Cooperative Learning includes:
      • Positive Interdependence

  • 6. Positive Interdependence
    • Positive interdependence means you need each other to complete your task.
    • How do you get it?
      • Establish mutual goals
      • Come up with rewards to everyone
      • Share materials and information
      • Assign roles

    • Assigning roles is a key element to making sure your project goes well.
    • Here are some examples of roles:
      • Recorder —takes and keeps official notes
      • Cheerleader – encourages the group when the group is doing great or not-so-great
      • Facilitator (leader) —makes sure everyone has a role and responsibility and is doing it.
      • Parliamentarian (rule keeper) —keeps everyone on task and enforces the group’s rules
