Jacobs, George M.
Defining cooperative learning (CL) as a collection of concepts and techniques for enhancing the value of student-student interaction, this paper describes a workshop presenting key CL concepts. It describes two CL techniques that can be used in the teaching of reading and highlights connections between CL concepts and these two techniques. The paper provides activities using the techniques with four inter-related texts on the environment for the workshop participants. Contains 9 references; 4 appendixes contain Internet resources on cooperative learning, reading passages and questions used in the workshop; and other learning technique illustrations. (SC)
