Cooperative learning is not a new idea.
Cooperative Learning refers to a set of instructional methods in which students work in small, mixed-ability learning teams.
The students in each team are responsible not only for learning the material being taught, but also for helping their teammates learn.
Within cooperative learning groups students discuss the material to be learned with each other, help and assist each other to understand it, and encourage each other to work hard.
Any assignment in any curriculum for any age student can be done cooperatively.
