1. Cooperative Learning
2. Shall We??
3. Forming the Teams
4. Clearly define the problem
Your team must build a boat of aluminum which will hold the most pennies while free-floating in water. (10 cm x 10 cm)
5. Clearly define the problem
The last pennies held for 3 seconds without causing the boat to sink is the official weight held by the boat.
6. Clearly define the problem
The boat holding the most weight wins.
7. Design 1- 15%
Make 2 drawings of the boat you want your group to build side view top down view
8. Design 2- 15%
Write why your design will hold the most pennies I think that my design will hold the most pennies because it has a rounded bottom like a kayak and everyone knows how well kayaks float. Also, I am making the sides very high so the water will have a hard time coming in. Too, when …
9. Rules of engagement…
With respect… Listen without interrupting initially Ask for clarification Let each member of the group present ideas before criticizing Criticize ideas not people Be kind…(body language, tone, intent) Model
10. Choose a final design
Through consensus choose a design and construct it. Before competition, the judge reserves the right to crush any boat and ask any group member to build a new identical boat from fresh materials (Yes, this means that you need to know how the boat was constructed!!).
11. Choose a final design (cont’d)
Any group member must be ready to explain why the group’s design was chosen and why they think the boat will hold the most pennies. Each member of the group will receive an individual score representing their work based on:
12. Your Individual Grade (IG=60%)for Working as a Team Member
Could you rebuild the boat? Could you explain the boat’s design? Did you support your group during construction of the boat? Did you work to facilitate your group’s success? Did you follow the “Rules of Engagement”?
13. Team Grade 5%
Is everyone on the team able to articulate the rationale for the boat design? Can everyone build the boat?
14. Load the Boat
Time to load your boat! Choose a team member to load 1 penny at a time into your boat until it sinks (trash talking is permissible but the “Rules of Engagement” are still in effect). Causing waves is strictly prohibited.
15. Team Analysis
Discuss with your team what happened and how to make it better. Everyone should be able to explain the re-design rationale.
All A’s meet to talk about changes they are making. All B’s meet to talk about changes they are making. All C’s meet to talk about changes they are making.
17. Reconvene for Round 2
The team builds another boat (same rules) The higher the class average of pennies held the higher your score for this portion. This is your class cooperation score (CC=5%).
18. Group Processing Time
How well did we follow the “Rules of Engagement?” scale of 1-10 (1 is poor and 10 is excellent) What group behaviors worked well? What did not work well? What could be done to change the things that did not work?
19. Your score
Design 1 + Design 2 + IG + Team + CC 15% 15% 60% 5% 5%is to as is to
21. What is it?
Purposeful student groups that meet definite criteria: P ositive interdependence I ndividual accountability G roup processing S ocial skills Face to Face interaction
22. Positive Interdependence
All members believe that one person can not succeed unless the group succeeds. If one person fails everyone has failed. Each member’s efforts are important.
23. Individual Accountability
Individual performance is assessed and shared with the group as a whole. Behavior can change or persist accordingly
24. Group Processing
Students work as a team, share resources, encourage each other, teach each other, help each other problem solve.
25. Social Skills
Necessary social skills must be articulated and taught. Criticize ideas not people Listen before speaking Don’t interrupt Encourage interaction Ask for help
26. Face to Face Interaction
Members of group need time to talk and interact with each other and with you.
27. How to Measure Success?
When every group member feels that they learned more because of the group you have created a successful cooperative learning group.
28. Instructor Requirements?
Relinquish the floor Plan ahead Be creative Be available Learn from failure
29. Questions/ Comments?
