Question and answer
Why is cooperative learning an essential and effective teaching strategy? Explain.
Over the past decade, cooperative learning has emerged as the leading new approach to classroom instruction. [ One important reason for its advocacy is that numerous research studies in K–12 classrooms, in very diverse school settings and across a wide range of content areas, have revealed that students completing cooperative learning group tasks tend to have higher academic test scores, higher selfesteem, greater numbers of positive social skills, fewer stereotypes of individuals of other races or ethnic groups, and greater comprehension of the content and skills they are studying (
Johnson, Johnson, and Holubec 1993; Slavin 1991; Stahl and VanSickle 1992). Furthermore, the perspective of students working as “academic loners” in classrooms is very different from that of students working cooperatively and collaboratively in and as “cooperative learning academic teams”. ]
