Group Rewards Make Groupwork Work.
Slavin, Robert E.
Educational Leadership, v48 n5 p89-91 Feb 1991
Critiques Kohn's article (in the same "Educational Leadership" issue) arguing against the use of cooperative rewards. Without group rewards based on the learning of all group members, cooperative learning can degenerate into answer-sharing. The idea that such rewards (usually paper certificates) can be dispensed with is wishful thinking. Includes 22 references. (MLH)
