  • 1. Cooperative Learning Definition Characteristics Why Use cooperative learning? Example 1 Teaching Strategies for Secondary Schools: Glossary Example 3 Beware! Example 4 Example 5 Example 2
  • 2. Definition
    • Method where teams work to prepare and present a topic to the whole class. Emphasis is on student choice of:
    • Topics
    • Division of labor
    • Methods of presentation
    • Partners (Dr. T. usually avoided this)
    Return to start
  • 3. Six Characteristics
    • Students work together on learning activity
    • Small groups of 2 - 5 members
    • Cooperative behavior to accomplish tasks
    • Positively interdependent
    • Individually accountable or responsible for their work or learning
    • Teacher responsible for introduction, constant monitoring of the groups, and final closure
    Return to start
  • 4. Why use this method?
    • Motivates students to learn material
    • Ensures students construct own knowledge
    • Formative* feedback
    • Develops social/group skills essential in today’s workplace
    • Promotes positive interaction between different cultural or economic groups
    Return to start *see glossary at end of presentation
  • 5. Example 1: Interview/ Icebreaker
    • Groups of 2 initially
    • A interviews B for specified minutes, with predetermined questions
    • At signal, B interviews A
    • At signal, groups of four formed with introductions to four
    • As time, class introductions
    Return to start
  • 6. Example 2: Roundtable
    • Faculty poses question ( e.g. What was the primary cause of the Civil War?)
    • One piece of paper/pen per group
    • 1st student writes one response and reads it aloud, then passes paper to next student
    • Continue around the group until time called
    • Give students short time to summarize
    • One student per group presents to class
    Return to start
  • 7. Example 3: Structured Learning
    • Leader - responsible for keeping group on task & involved
    • Recorder - writes group files/suggestions
    • Reporter - gives oral presentation to class at end
    • Monitor - serves as timekeeper & responsible that area left clean at end
    • Wildcard (if group of 5) - serves as assistant to leader
  • 8. Example 4: Favorite Artist/Musician
    • Each student in group writes top five favorite artists from a teacher selected list of artists
    • Names are read in each group to find an artist that was on each list
    • When an artist is agreed on, the group will submit the name to teacher
    • First group to submit a name will be responsible for a class presentation of that artist
    Continued on next slide
  • 9. Example 4: Favorite Artist (cont.) 1 2 3 4 Team Name
  • 10. Example 5: Peer Questioning
    • Faculty conducts a brief (10-15 min.) lecture on a topic
    • Instructor then gives students a set of generic question stem*
    • Each student individually writes his/her own questions based on the material
    • The group then picks a question for discussion
  • 11. Beware!
    • Do proper preparation
    • Don’t let students pick groups
    • Don’t let high achievers dominate group
    • Don’t let low achiever remain passive…. Get everyone involved!
    • Have faith in the process
    • Be willing to be a good “juggler”
    • Don’t overuse this technique
    Return to start
  • 12. Related Terms/ Glossary Return to start
