Cooperative Learning in Elementary Classrooms: Teaching Practices and Lesson Characteristics.
Emmer, Edmund T.; Gerwels, Mary Claire
Elementary School Journal, v103 n1 p75-91 Sep 2002
Investigated characteristics of cooperative learning (CL) lessons among experienced elementary school teachers. Found considerable variation in the extent to which lessons incorporated major features of CL. Lesson success based on student engagement, performance, and cooperation was associated with higher levels of individual or group accountability, teacher monitoring, feedback, and the use of manipulative materials in group work.
