Biracial Learning Teams and Race Relations in the Classroom: Four Field Experiments on Teams-Games-Tournament.
DeVries, David L.; And Others
While many school systems are desegregating by altering the racial composition of their schools, fear, mistrust, and a lack of understanding characterize interactions among many students of different racial backgrounds. Recent research suggests that multi-racial cooperative student teams represent one way of improving race relations. The results of four field experiments with one classroom team structure, Teams-Games-Tournament (TGT), in racially integrated classrooms are reviewed. A consistent pattern of positive impact of TGT on both the number and percentage of cross-race relations is noted. The results provide additional support for the use of student teams to increase racial integration in classrooms. (Author)
