Cooperative learning has an effect size of .78 when compared with instructional strategies in which students work on tasks individually without competing with one another – this translates to a 28 percentile gain!

10 Okay….If I need to use cooperative learning in my classroom…..
Help me! What do I need to know to implement this strategy effectively?

11 Positive Interdependence:
Positive Interdependence is probably the most important AND the most difficult part of cooperative learning. Why? Because you need to plan it so that the capable students don’t feel held back and the less capable students feel like they had input. *Intro. “Talking Chips” activity – allows for equal participation – *Forming Teams

12 Forming Teams Setup: class list index cards student scores
colored circles Step1: Make cards for each student Step 2: Sort the cards Step 3: Color code the cards Step 4: Form your teams

13 Individual and Group Accountability:
Plan a group task but individual assessment of the knowledge or skill that is your focus. The goal is to make each member stronger. Students learn together and eventually become stronger individually. 4 members / 4 pens (each member has their own colors) OR assign a “job” for each person (materials, recorder, quiet captain, taskmaster) Selector Spinner

14 Interpersonal and Social Skills:
Social skills for effective cooperative work do not magically appear Social skills must be taught to students just as purposefully and precisely as academic skills.

15 Some social skills you must teach for cooperative learning to be successful:
active listening turn taking respecting the ideas of others sharing materials not making or receiving put-downs to never laugh at another’s input solving problems making decisions praising others disagreeing in an agreeing way resolving conflicts reaching consensus
