College Teaching Methods & Styles Journal, v6 n1 p7-12 2010
Three classes of undergraduate Hispanic students assigned to an ESL professor and a teaching assistant were selected to experience cooperative learning over a full semester. Pre-semester surveys were completed by 80 undergraduate students. Post-semester surveys were completed by 66 undergraduate students. Strategies used in the classes included Think-Pair-Share, Ticket Out the Door, Jigsaw and being a member of a base group. This study is based upon theories of social interdependence, cognitive development, and behavioral learning. The surveys were completed by the university students to compare and contrast knowledge about their experiences in: 1) individual learning, and 2) learning with a partner. (Contains 1 table.)
