Teacher-Student Cooperative Learning in the Freshman Writing Course.
Ney, James W.
This study examined the effectiveness of a cooperative learning model for the teaching of Freshman English at the college level. The model involved student presentations based on assigned readings from the texts, nine compositions and daily quizzes on the reading material, and peer grading of the daily quizzes as well as mid-term and final exams, which included spot checking by the instructor for accuracy of grading. Weekly attitudinal surveys revealed a postive perception of students on the whole toward the conduct of the class. Results further indicated that the disciplined structure of the model produced in the students better mastery of the subject matter and led to better classroom attendance. (Nine tables of data are included; 32 references and one appendix containing the attitudinal survey are attached.) (KEH)
