Cooperating for Success - Cooperative Learning Benefits Teachers and Students
Cooperative learning can be incorporated in multi-grade settings if several steps are followed. First the teacher must make a commitment to stay with cooperative learning long enough to become proficient at it. Second, go slowly. Third, have someone to whom you can turn for support. Benefits include less time spent in discipline and grading, and raised test scores and grades for lower-achieving students.
