Tibbetts, John; And Others
This training packet on team learning is 1 of 10 developed by the Study of Adult Basic Education (ABE)/English as a Second Language (ESL) Training Approaches Project to assist ABE instructors, both professionals and volunteers. The packet is intended to stand alone and encompasses a three-session workshop series with activities scheduled for participants to accomplish between sessions. Ideally, the sessions should take place about 1 month apart. Introductory materials include information about the series and the training packet, a workshop overview (objectives, time, materials checklist, preparations checklist), and workshop outline for each session. Trainer notes for each session include a checklist of tasks to be completed before the session and an outline of activities with necessary materials and times. The following topics are covered in the sessions: learning in groups and teams; cooperative learning; choosing appropriate team strategies; criteria for planning and managing teams; individual roles in groups; and evaluation of team learning. Time is allowed for preparation for the home task and feedback on the home task. Trainers' supplements, including sample answers, follow. Other contents include masters for all handouts and transparencies needed in the sessions. (YLB)
