Cooperative learning

By Ashley, Lauren, and Matt

Tables or desks need to be arranged to allow teacher’s unrestricted movement

Groups already need to be arranged to allow for group work

talk and movement procedures
Talk and Movement Procedures

Students should use “six inch voices” to cut down noise levels

Movement between groups should be restricted by the teacher (“Stay in your group” or “Take care of out-of-group business promptly”)

Transitions should be timed so students can be accountable for how much time is left

group attention signals
Group Attention Signals
