Cooperative Learning May 29, 2019
Do the youth in your program have opportunities to work together in groups, teaching and learning from each other? Cooperative learning is an excellent way to nurture youth leadership, build community, and keep things fun. This interactive workshop will equip participants with grouping strategies and ways to think about building cooperative learning into any program offering. Participants will be able to define cooperative learning. Participants will gain experience using a variety of group forming strategies (Group Formers) and group work structures (Group Structures). Participants will understand how cooperative learning helps to meet the social and intellectual needs of youth. Participants will learn how to apply four complementary strategies to engineer successful cooperative learning structures.
