Student Team Learning.
Slavin, Robert E.
Three Student Team Learning techniques have been extensively researched and found to significantly increase student learning. In Student Teams Achievement Divisions (STAD), teams are made up of high, average, and low performing students of both genders and different racial and ethnic backgrounds. Team members study worksheets, work problems in pairs, take turns quizzing each other, or discuss problems as a group, using any means they wish to master the material. Teams-Games-Tournaments (TGT) uses teams and format similar to STAD; however, students play academic games to show their individual mastery of the subject matter in weekly tournaments. In Jigsaw, academic material is broken down into sections, teams of two master the sections and in turn instruct other team-mates in their areas of "expertise." A case study is presented of a student experiencing the three Student Team Learning techniques. Research evidence is presented on the effectiveness of Student Team Learning in academic achievement and its usefulness in integrating biracial and mainstreamed classrooms. (JD)
