Gifted Students Illustrate What Isn't Cooperative Learning.
Johnson, David; Johnson, Roger T.
Educational Leadership, v50 n6 p60-61 Mar 1993
In October 1992 issue of "Educational Leadership," Marian Matthews communicates several misunderstandings about cooperative learning. Interview data from 15 middle schoolers in a wealthy district are not generalizable to all cooperative-learning situations. A cooperative-learning group is neither a seating arrangement nor individualistic learning with talking nor competition at close quarters, but involves positive interaction to promote each others' success.
