Teams-Games-Tournament: A Student Team Approach to Teaching Adolescents with Special Emotional and Behavioral Needs. Report No. 206.
Slavin, Robert E.
The effects of Teams-Games-Tournament (TGT), an instructional technique involving student teams and learning games, and individualized instruction were compared in 39 students (in grades 7-9) experiencing problems with human relationships and academic tasks. Results confirmed hypotheses that TGT would exceed individualized instruction on social connectedness, pro-academic peer norms, frequency of peer tutoring, and percent of time on task. A 5-month followup showed former TGT students distributed among six new classes to still be interacting with their peers both on and off task more than control students. However, TGT students were off task more than control students at the time of the followup observations. (Author/SB)
