National Center on Effective Secondary Schools Resource Bulletin, n4 Spr 1988
This resource bulletin focuses on Student Team Learning and Learning Together as practiced in secondary schools. Student Team Learning involves both cooperation and competition. It emphasizes the three ideas of cooperative activity structure (success in the task requires contributions from all members); cooperative reward structure (group members are rewarded for group success); and individual accountability (the individual's contribution to the group's success is clear). In Learning Together, teachers use different methods to nurture a philosophy of cooperation based on five elements: positive interdependence, face-to-face interaction, individual accountability; social skills, and group processing. Working in groups on assignments to produce a single group product, students are instructed to seek help from one another before asking the teacher for assistance. (JD)
