Research on Cooperative Learning: Consensus and Controversy.
Slavin, Robert E.
Educational Leadership, v47 n4 p52-54 Dec-Jan 1989-90

More research is needed to gauge cooperative learning's effectiveness at senior high and college levels and for instilling higher order concepts. Includes 21 references. (MLH)
