Cooperative Learning for Students from Diverse Language Backgrounds. ERIC Digest.
ERIC Clearinghouse on Languages and Linguistics, Washington, DC.
In cooperative learning, students work together in small groups on tasks that require cooperation and interdependence among all individuals in each group. This digest looks at how cooperative learning can be used as an effective method for working with students from diverse language backgrounds. Focus is specifically on the structural approach to cooperative learning, which is based on the creation, analysis, and systematic application of structures or content-free ways of organizing social interaction in the classroom. An overview of selected cooperative learning structures is provided as well as a brief description of each structure and its academic and social functions. (VWL)
