Transcript: WIDA Standard 2: EL`s will communicate information, ideas, and concepts necessary for the academic success in the content area of language arts. Step 1: Assign groups and build a team Divide class into groups and provide team building activity as a "warm-up" to help students see advantages of cooperation and getting to know each other. (One of the Alliance Theater activities would be a great warm!! Step 2: Assign roles within the groups Give the team members cards that identify their assigned roles and list clear descriptions of their duties. All members are aware of who has each role. Step 3: Assign the task Give each team a task to complete and remind each member of the roles they are expected to serve to assist the others in completing the task. Step 4: Intervene to ensure full participation Teacher will need to monitor behavior and intervene when necessary. Step 5: Report back to class Have each group share solutions and product. Step 6: Debrief and examine the groups process Give each group time to debrief, discussing the process and roles each team member played in the success of the group. This strategy can be adapted to any grade or subject. The class will split up into to groups of three. Each member in each group will receive a role card. The roles are to identify the beginning, middle, or end of the book "Arthur`s Thanksgiving". ELLs will be encouraged to participate in the task or the whole team will fail to accomplish their assignment. All students are supported to succeed because peer tutoring and group support of individuals are encouraged and rewarded. ELLs have the opportunity to get to know other students and demonstrate their competence in a variety of ways. ELLs will benefit from the verbal interactions. learning social norms and content-related language. It will lower their stress level by working in a small group. Cooperative Learning Strategy #6 How will this activity help ELLs? ELACC1RL7: Use illustrations and details in a story to describe its characters, setting, or events.

Group one: investigate male lions, Group two: female lions, Group three: habitat, Group four: diet The teacher asks the students a question and has the students think it over Present the information to their jigsaw group Have one student from each jigsaw group join other students who learned about the same segment they learned, male lions will form a group, female lion segment will form a group, etc. Group building requires teachers to make sure their students have a clear understanding of what is expected of them. Teach them skills such as disagreeing nicely by explaining why he or she is incorrect about a topic. Varied instruction for pairs check could be shortening the assignment for the pairs.

Transcript: Cooperative Learning Educational Pschology Brittany Davenport Anecdotal Log Cooperative Learning Activity Easter Egg Showdown Easter Egg Showdown is a variation in which the task cards are tucked inside plastic Easter eggs. Students select an egg, open it, read the problem or task, and everyone on the team writes a response. In the final step, team members compare and discuss their answers. In the example above, the task cards contain sentences, and students have to identify the subject and the predicate of each sentence. Goals and Objectives In the final step, team members compare and discuss their answers. In the example above, the task cards contain sentences, and students have to identify the subject and the predicate of each sentence. What was the purpose of the activity? This activity is intended to allow students to review standards in a fun way, as well as inforcing the importance of listening to one another, working together, and compromising ideas. Describe the dynamics of the group’s participants. As I watched the groups, different students reacted differently. The most common occurance was a dominant leader. The dominant leader would address what he or she thought was the subject and the predicate. Some students would disagree and give their reasoning, other students would just become submissive to the dominant student. A lot of collaboration would take place once a student disagreed with the leader. Was the objective for the activity achieved? As I watched the students participate in this activity, they seemed to become secure with the concept of subject and predicate. As third graders, they were able to work well as a team. Exchanging of words, explaining of reasoning, and expanding the thought process definately took place. How was social learning used? The Social Learning Theory is being displayed by the situation the activity was placed in. "It considers that people learn from one another, including such concepts as observational learning, imitation, and modeling (Ormand, Web)." I believe that cooperative learning is one of the best learning experience you can present as a teacher. It allows students to listen, and bounce ideas off one another. In setting up a cooperative group activity, how would you monitor the group’s work, grade the individuals in the group, and evaluate its specific value as an instructional strategy? In evaluating the progress of this activity through groups, I would allow every group to set up a subject/predicate chart on an erasable white board. When the group had completed the chart, I would ask the group to give me a thorough explanation of why they chose the particular parts of the sentence for the predicate and subject. On the individual level, I would give a quick assesment, a quiz if you will, to the entire class. Then, I would conduct a discussion over the topic. Works Cited Ormand, J.E. "Social Learning Theory."

Transcript: Students have to rely on each other to complete the math stations. A lot of the math stations are games in which the students have to play together and take turns to complete the game. At each math station there is a sheet that their work has to be recorded on. One student is the recorder at the first station and the other student is the recorder at the second station. If a student needs help, their partner is there to help them and figure it out. Kindergarten students are paired together. A lower achieving student is paired with a higher achieving student. There are ten different math stations to choose from. Each pair chooses a math station. The students work together at that math station for 20 minutes to complete the task at hand. The math stations help the students practice their math skills. Prior to the math stations, a math lesson is taught. After 20 minutes students clean up and choose a new math station. They work together at the next math station for another 20 minutes. After the students have completed their two math stations they get to reflect and give feedback about how they think they worked together. Each partner gets to rate their partner and their teamwork with smiley faces. The partners stay the same for one week. At the end of the week we have a whole class discussion about how the groups worked and what could be done to improve them. Reflection Social Skill - Encouraging Everyone to Participate By Lauren Farwell Positive Interdependence Interpersonal and Small Group Skills Students work together to complete each math station. The students have to help each other when they need it. If a student is not understanding, the other student can help them and teach them what to do. Students sit eye-to-eye, knee-to-knee with the materials in the middle. Students must talk together to figure out what they are going to record. Math stations allow students to practice and use their social skills. They must trust each other and work through problems. In order to accomplish the task at each math station students must be able to communicate effectively with one another. They must also agree on the answer, result, or solution for the math stations, which helps with their decision-making skills. During math stations I monitor, help, and assess the students while giving feedback. I am able to know that all students are participating by listening and watching. I have a checklist that I fill out about their participation and mastery of a skill. While visiting each group I also help them and provide feedback by letting them know how they are doing and giving them advice. After math stations the students get to give their partner a smiley face if they think that they were being a good partner. Individual Accountability During math stations the students are encouraged to ask questions of their partners. I want them to fully understand and grasp the math concepts, and to do so I think that they need to understand what their partner is thinking. By asking questions of each other they are encouraging each other to participate and be involved. Face-to-Face Promotive Interaction I think that this cooperative learning lesson went great. This is a cooperative learning lesson that I do each day. Each day I feel like it is a success. The students have fun with these math stations while working together and mastering different math concepts. During this lesson I observed every element of cooperative learning and many social skills. I feel like these math stations are helping the students build the skills they need to continue to work well with others. Math Stations Cooperative Learning Lesson Group Processing
