Cooperative Learning and Social Studies Education: The Intersection of Theory and Practice at Neumann College.
Savitz, Fred; Yoder, Ruth
Two faculty members of the Division of Education at Neumann College (Pennsylvania) have collaborated in the development of a cooperative learning based teacher preparation curriculum in early childhood education and elementary education. At every level of pre-service training, students enrolled in these programs are exposed to activities, strategies, and assignments that incorporate cooperative learning. The curriculum is grounded in the relationship that is established between cooperative learning and the three domains of learning: cognitive, affective, and psychomotor. Ultimately, students become fully engaged in recognizing when the application of cooperative learning to instruction is appropriate, why its application benefits the learner, and how to make the most effective application of it.
