What Is Cooperative Learning?
How Do I Get Started?
- Give all students silent think time to formulate an answer.
- Have students share their answer with a partner.
- You can achieve this with a table partner or by finding a partner with another method.
- After sufficient time has passed as one student to share out what their partner said.
This method gives all students a chance to answer the question. It also provides positive simultaneous interaction among many students and frees the teacher up. This way you can listen in on student conversations and support students who may need it. This is what I call a win-win.
