Students work together in small groups, sharing responsibilities for completing a task or project.
Learning that occurs as students work together in small groups to help each other achieve an academic goal.
Where students cooperate with each other to perform or complete a particular task. Students need not collaborate on the most appropriate methodology to complete the task. In fact, students are typically assigned to groups and assigned roles in order to make the process more efficient.
Learning format the requires the cooperation of a small number of students who work towards the completion of a given task; each student is responsible for a part of the task, and the entire task cannot be completed without all the learners finishing their portion of the task.
a learning situation in which small groups of students, under teacher guidance, cooperate in achieving cognitive and social learning objectives.
a learning arrangement in which students work together to achieve certain academic and behavioral skills.
A group setting that is very structured and allows for children to work within a group on a project.
A teaching method in which students of differing abilities work together on an assignment. Each student has a specific responsibility within the group. Students complete assignments together and receive a common grade.
A teaching model involving students working together as partners or in small groups on clearly defined tasks. It has been used successfully to teach comprehension strategies in content-area subjects.
Refers to a set of instructional methods in which students work in small, mixed ability groups. The students are responsible not only for learning the material, but also for helping their teammates learn.
The structuring of learning activities so students work cooperatively in groups. The structures must be designed to foster five basic elements: positive interdependence, individual account- ability, face-to-face interaction, collaborative skill development and group processing. Cooperative learning structures for second language learners optimize opportunities for meaningful interactions and language use.
A teaching strategy designed to promote productive and mutual learning among a group of students.
Students collaborate and interact in the achievement of shared learning goals.
This term is used to described structured group work in which students work together and direct their own learning; the teacher acts as a facilitator of learning. Students are frequently assigned roles within their group (i.e., chairperson, recorder, manager, reporter, organizer).
Students working in groups to accomplish specific learning tasks.
Groups of more than two students collaborating as they learn the same material.
a relationship in a group of students that requires positive interdependence, individual accountability, interpersonal skills, face-to-face promotive interaction and processing.
Involves the more conventional notion of cooperation, in that learners work in small groups on an assigned project or problem under the guidance of the trainer who monitors the groups, making sure the learners are staying on task and are coming up with the correct answers (if there is a right or a best answer). Also see collaborative learning.
a set of instructional methods in which students work in small groups to contribute to the problem under study. To make cooperative learning effective for the gifted, ability and interest must be considered in establishing such groups.
Education method in which students work on class projects in pairs or teams. Proponents of this approach say that each child brings unique strengths to the project and learns how to work collaboratively, as is often required in the workplace.
Student learning that takes place when students work together in groups to accomplish shared goals.
a teaching strategy in which small teams, each with students of different levels of ability, use a variety of learning activities to improve their understanding of a subject, almost always under the guidance of an instructor.
Cooperative learning involves students working together as partners or in small groups on clearly defined tasks. It has been used successfully to teach comprehension strategies in content-area subjects.
An environment structured such that a child can work within a group on a project.
An instructional approach that involves small groups of individuals working toward a common goal.
An instructional strategy that has students working together within the classroom. Responsibilities and rewards are shared by group members.
instructional approach in which students work together as a team with each member contributing to the completion of the task or project.
A type of instructional strategy where students work cooperatively and collaboratively in learning teams. To be successful in having students complete group tasks within a coorperative framework, there must be: clear set of specific student learning outcome objectives; clear and complete set of task-completion directions or instructions; heterogeneous groups; equal opportunity for success; positive interdependence; face-to-face interaction; individual accountability; and post group reflection (or debriefing) within group behavior.
learning that occurs through group participation and cooperation.
Students are placed in small groups, working together to achieve certain learning objectives in the classroom
Instructional method in which students work together in small, heterogeneous groups to complete a problem, project, or other instructional goal, while teachers act as guides or facilitators. This method works to reinforce the learning of oneself as well as the learning of group members. ( learn more)
Cooperative learning was proposed in response to traditional curriculum-driven education. In cooperative learning environments, students interact in purposely structured heterogeneous group to support the learning of one self and others in the same group.
