Institute for Effective Education Using the Success for ALL Co-operative Learning Strategies in the classroom
Institute for Effective Education What is PowerTeaching? PowerTeaching is a framework that provides teachers with the tools necessary to deliver rich, powerful, and engaging lessons utilising research-proven instructional practices that increase student achievement.
Institute for Effective Education Basic Skills for the 21st Century Interpersonal skills Learning to learn Teamwork Problem solving Communication: written and oral Ability to negotiate
Institute for Effective Education Co-operative Learning Individual accountability Group recognition Equal opportunities for success Co-operative learning is a set of instructional methods in which children work in small, mixed- ability learning teams or partnerships to achieve a common learning goal.
Institute for Effective Education We Learn… 10% of what we READ 20% of what we HEAR 30% of what we SEE 50% of what we HEAR & SEE 70% of what we DISCUSS with others 80% of what we EXPERIENCE personally 95% of what we TEACH to someone else William Glasser Co-operative Learning
Institute for Effective Education Co-operative Learning
Institute for Effective Education Classroom Management Techniques Think-Pair-Share Tell Your Partner Random Reporter Zero Noise 3B4ME Think Alouds Modelling Cheers
Institute for Effective Education Establishing Teams Students are in teams of 4/5 They: Complete a team building activity Choose a team name Write their team name and display on their table Come up with a team cheer if possible
Institute for Effective Education Group vs. Team What is the difference between a group and a team? With your partner, identify which of the attitudes and behaviours listed are Team (T) and those that are Group (G)
Co-operative Learning Standards Practise Active Listening Explain Your Ideas and Tell Why Everyone Participates Help and Encourage Others Complete Tasks
Institute for Effective Education Team Co-operation Goals Practice Active Listening Help and Encourage Others Explain Your Ideas/Tell Why Everyone Participates Complete Tasks
Institute for Effective Education Teaching Team Co-operation Goals Explain Your Ideas/Tell Why Looks LikeSounds Like
Institute for Effective Education Setting Goals (Co-operative Learning Standards Points)
Institute for Effective Education Team Certificates
Institute for Effective Education What makes a PowerTeaching lesson different? How do the lessons reinforce co- operative learning? Lessons divided into 4 stages Classroom management aimed at increasing pupil talk Mixed ability teams
Institute for Effective Education The Cycle of Effective Instruction Celebration Active Instruction Assessment Teamwork The Cycle of Effective Instruction
Institute for Effective Education Lesson Structures The 5 components of each lesson are: 1.Active Instruction 2.Team Huddle 3.Team Mastery 4.Team Check 5. Individual Assessment Team Check
Institute for Effective Education Active Instruction Explaining a new skill and its application - teacher introduces the topic of instruction and clearly explains the learning objective - use Think-Pair-Share and Tell-Your-Partner to engage all pupils and quickly move through the necessary information
Institute for Effective Education Team Huddle Checking pre-requisite / existing knowledge - children work as a team to answer a question on a familiar topic - use Random Reporter to select one child per team to answer and explain their team's answer to the class
Institute for Effective Education Team Mastery Supported, individual work - children work independently on a set of questions, supported by / checking frequently with team members - choose one question, then use Random Reporter to have one child per team explain their answer
Institute for Effective Education Team Check Ensuring the team has supported one another - children work independently without team consultation on just one question - use Random Reporter to choose one child per team to respond
Institute for Effective Education Individual Assessment Individual Assessment/ Team Celebration -By now children should be ready to succeed -The Individual children are assessed rather than the team -Ultimately each child needs to learn and apply their learning Individual success = Team success Individual Assessment/ Team Celebration -By now children should be ready to succeed -The Individual children are assessed rather than the team -Ultimately each child needs to learn and apply their learning Individual success = Team success

Co-operative Learning Results Higher achievement Increased retention More positive heterogeneous relationships Great intrinsic motivation Higher self-esteem More on-task behaviour Better attitudes toward teacher Better attitudes toward school
Four Major Theoretical Perspectives on Co-operative Learning and Achievement
Motivational Perspective Motivation is the single most impactive part of the learning process. Co-operation incentive structures create a situation in which the only way group members can attain their own personal goal is if the group is successful.
Social Cohesion Perspective The effects of co-operative learning on achievement are strongly mediated by the cohesiveness of the group. Students will engage in the task and help one another learn because they identify with the group and want one another to succeed.
Cognitive Elaboration Perspective Talking with others helps students to understand and remember things better. Cognitive processing helps transfer information from short-term to long-term memory.
Developmental Perspective Interaction among children around appropriate tasks increases their mastery of critical concepts. Students will learn from one another because in their discussions of content, cognitive conflicts will arise, inadequate reasoning will be exposed and higher quality understandings will emerge.
Institute for Effective Education Top 5 Glows
Institute for Effective Education BISHOP RAWSTORNE Power Teaching experience in English and Mathematics Head of English and Mathematics have followed the programme, and trialled the teaching method. “We are happiest when teaching this way.” “Pupils have responded very positively to these experiences.” “It has influenced and positively impacted on our general teaching, even where we are not specifically fully Power Teaching. A two hour presentation to all colleagues proved highly successful. Staff found it uplifting, and it has changed the teaching practices of a number of colleagues, as you will see later.”

Institute for Effective Education Being able to work in a team is not an important skill BISHOP RAWSTORNE Power Teaching in Mathematics
Institute for Effective Education I would rather go back to my maths lessons as they were before team learning BISHOP RAWSTORNE Power Teaching in Mathematics
Institute for Effective Education Student Voice I like working in teams... “Because it’s more fun and it’s a better learning system – if you don’t get something, you can ask a team mate and they’ll give you a simple explanation.” “Because everyone helps you when you don’t understand.” ‘‘Because it’s more clear when I am in groups and easier to explain and learn.’ “Because you get to compare ideas and learn more.”
Institute for Effective Education What do you look forward to most in your Maths classes? ‘Understanding something better’ ‘I look forward to the challenge’ ‘Working in a team’ ‘You can enjoy it more’ ‘Learning new things in a fun way’ ‘Doing problem solving in your groups’ ‘Being able to explain things at your own pace’ Our favourite! ‘Learning something that I can tell someone and them going ‘Wow’ that’s great’
