Cooperative Learning or Groupwork?

Broken Pies Activity
Using 3 Step Interview
Reflection: Broken Pies with P.I.E.S.
Numbered Heads Together
Three Step Interview
Students interview their partner ,and then share what they learned with the other pair in their team.
Form a team of 4
Number off 1-4
Pick a name for your team
Leave the white board and marker in the center.
Have a pen ready to take notes.
When a question is asked you will have 30 seconds to think/write your answers.
Then you will discuss as a team and decide on your team's answer
When time is called STOP! No more sharing allowed.
A number will be called and that person ONLY takes the white board and with no help, writes their team's answer
When asked hold up your white board and be ready to explain your answer
Step 1
In each group of 4, form 2 pairs (A,B)

Step 2
about one 'Structure'-take notes.
When time is called,
A interviews B
and learns about his/her structure
AFTER each interview
positive paraphrase
your partner:
One thing I learned was....' or:
'I enjoyed listening to you because...'
Then switch roles, B interviews A.
Don't forget the positive paraphrase!
Step 3
After A-B interview each other,
A explains B's structure to other
pair, B explains A's
Take notes as needed, answer any questions.
Why Cooperative Learning?
Cooperative learning has been extensively researched with consistent results
Effective implementation of cooperative learning can:
When instructed:
Share your answers with your neighbor.
1. students are given a complex, multi-step problem that is different from the ones they’ve seen in the past and, to solve it, they have to apply previously acquired knowledge from both geometry and algebra.
2. Mere memorization won’t get them very far in this lesson; critical thinking and problem-solving skills are required.
3. They have to find two ways to solve the problem, which requires some initiative and imagination. Just getting the correct answer isn’t good enough; they have to explain their proofs—using effective communication skills.
4. The teacher does not spoon feed students the answers; he uses questions to push students’ thinking—as well as their tolerance for ambiguity.
5. because the teacher has said that he’ll randomly call on a student to show how the group solved the problem, each student in every group is held accountable. The group can’t rely on the work of one or two students to get by, and the teacher isn’t going to just call on the first student to raise a hand or shout out an answer. Teamwork is required for success.
Rank the top 5 skills Fortune 500 companies say they look for in their employee
What skills are employers looking for?
1. Enhance Academic Achievement
2. Support closing the achievement gap
3. Improving interpersonal
4. Support development of personal and
interpersonal skills
Enhancing Academic Achievement
Cooperative learning outperforms competitive and individualistic learning structures across all levels, subject areas and almost all tasks
Filling the Socialization Void
Improving Relationships
177 research studies conducted since the 1940's find that compared to individualistic and competitive structures,
cooperative experiences promote greater interpersonal attraction.
Closing the Achievement Gap
In experimental studies minority students gained
than majority students, thus narrowing the achievement gap
Majority students also gained
in the cooperative learning classroom than traditional classrooms
1. Arrange yourselves into groups of four.
2. Do not open your envelopes until I say go.
3. Each person must create a complete circle.
(Meta analysis of Hall, Johnson, Maruyama, Lipsey& Wilson, Marzano, Pickering & Pollck, Slavin, Schereens & Bosker, Walberg)
Compared to students in traditional classrooms, students had a
37.9% increase of listing a student from a different race as a friend
Take a moment to think about the purpose of:
1. Answering questions in writing
2. Physical Barometer
3. Relay Talk
How would these activities benefit students?
Cooperative Learning:
Teaching arrangement that refers to small, heterogeneous groups of students working together to achieve a common goal (Kagan, 1994)
1. What part(s) of the Broken Pie's activity promoted Positive Interdependence?
Be ready to justify your answer.
2. What part(s) of the Broken Pie's activity promoted Equal Participation?
Be ready to justify your answer
3. What part(s) of the Broken Pie's activity promoted Simultaneous Interaction?
Be ready to justify your answer
4. Can you think of a way that 'Numbered Heads Together' could be used with specific content or in a lesson?
What benefit can you see for this type of activity?
Cooperative learning
Group Work
1. I will be able to explain the 4
requirements (P.I.E.S) that distinguish
cooperative learning from groupwork.
2. I will be able to describe the P.I.E.S. in
several cooperative structures.
3. I will be able to apply a
structured activity to a lesson.
