Research consistently supports that Cooperative Learning improves academic achievement, social skills and relations, self- esteem and the schooling experience in general. Participants will explore Dr. Spencer Kagan’s theories on Cooperative Learning and be guided in the acquisition of a wide range of practical instructional methods called Co-op Structures. Other benefits of this program include: intensifying the motivation to learn, decreasing time lost to classroom management, and improving acceptance of mainstreamed students.
