Teams-Games-Tournament in the Elementary Classroom: A Replication. Report No. 190.
DeVries, David L.; And Others
The present study is a replication of the initial use of the Teams-Games-Tournament (TGT) technique in the primary grades. TGT is a classroom management technique in which (1) students are placed on four member teams; (2) the student teams compete in regularly scheduled tournaments; and (3) the tournaments are structured around instructional games. Fifty-four third grade students were randomly assigned to either a TGT or control condition. Both treatment groups were exposed to a six-week curriculum unit teaching language arts skills. The results indicate a positive TGT effect on language arts skills and on classroom social processes. This study provides important validation of the effectiveness of TGT in the primary grades.
