Publisher Comments:

`The authors reveal considerable wealth of experience as teachers and as users of CL. This will be a very successful book' - Jon A Scaife, Lecturer in Education, School of Education, University of Sheffield</p> <p></p> <p>The authors of this volume define cooperative learning as "principles and techniques for helping students work together more effectively." Teachers of every level will find this book full of useful ideas on how the power of student-student cooperation can enliven their classrooms. </p> <p></p> <p>The authors share eight key principles of creating effective and efficient cooperative learning (CL), along with a variety of CL techniques and examples of how to use them. Research has shown that by participating in CL, students can benefit in the following areas (supporting research is described in the Resources): </p> <p></p> <p>- Improved academic achievement</p> <p>- More active involvement in learning by students regardless of past achievement level or individual learning needs</p> <p>- Increased student responsibility for their own learning</p> <p>- Improved collaborative skills</p> <p>- Improved student attitudes toward learning, school, peers, and self</p> <p>- Greater opportunities for the teacher to observe and assess student learning </p> <p></p> <p>At the same time teachers are learning a new way to teach, students are learning a new way to learn - along with the content being taught. Just as students can learn better when working with peers, so too can teachers; the benefits of teachers working together with colleagues are also described.

Book News Annotation:

Defining cooperative learning (CL) as "principles and techniques for helping students work together more effectively," and making the case that CL is not a recipe for behavioral chaos, a trio of educators share principles, techniques, and class-building activities for getting started in CL, e.g., diagrams for effective group seating, sample scoring guides, and cooperative games. They then answer frequently asked questions in relation to CL preparation, management, task creation, thinking enhancement, special situations, aid to faltering groups, and collaboration with other teachers. CL apparently applies to all grade levels as these are not specified. Jacobs (Ph.D., educational psychology) has been teaching courses on CL since 1988. References includes Web resources.
