Summary
"Since publication of the first edition of this best-selling book in 1986, cooperative learning has become a widely accepted strategy in U.S. schools. Now, with increased research and development, properly designed groupwork has evolved into a powerful tool for teaching all students, especially those from diverse backgrounds. The time has come to bring teachers up-to-date on the latest developments in the field." "Designing Groupwork combines easy-to-follow theory with examples and teaching strategies that are adaptable to any situation. The advantages and dilemmas of groupwork are discussed, as well as it's use in multiability and bilingual classrooms, and step-by-step approaches to successful planning, implementation, and evaluation of groupwork activities. This Second Edition includes new material on skill-building for more advanced students, on the development of roles for older and younger students, on how to use multiple ability treatments and how to avoid common pitfalls, on cooperation and anti-social behavior, and on a new treatment for status problems." "Drawing on years of research and teaching experience, Elizabeth Cohen has written a valuable and sensitive book for students of education and instruction both the elementary and secondary levels, and for anyone working in the field of education."--Jacket
