Transcript of Cooperative Learning Presentation

Cooperative Learning Techniques For Diverse Learners Cooperative learning is when students work together in groups on a structured activity provided by the teaching professional. They are individually accountable for their work but the group work is assessed as a whole. This allows for students to be able to work face to face and learn from one another in the process.
Diverse learners thrive from cooperative learning groups because this type of instructional method encorages socialized interaction with peers. This allows for the diverse learner to absorb information on an easier level because it is being explained on their own age level. Three Major Components The three major components to consider when
constructiong a cooperative learning group for your diversed learners are: Cirriculum
(what you teach) Instruction
(method the teacher
uses) Assessment
(how the student
performs) Three Ways to Differentiate
the Lesson Plan for Diverse
Learners 1. ADHD Learners In order to differentiate the lesson plan to suit an Attention
Deficit Hyper Disorder student, the student needs to have
an instructional method that allows the student to be
constantly moving and thinking. In this case an Extension
Activity will be used. This will allow the ADHD student to
first complete one task while constanly keeping busy. Then
the student will move on to the next task in the second
activity in order to aviod the student from becoming bored
with the lesson. A student who suffers from ADHD, needs
constant changes in their performance method of the task
given so that the student is not tempted by losing focus and
becoming bored. Constantly changing what the students
task will be in the coorperative learning group allows the
ADHD student to stay focused and present in the content
being taught. 2. ESL Learner Another group could have an ESL learner in it.
The strategy that I would recommend for this
student and group is the a conspicuous
strategy. This is when a specific set of steps
to be used to complete a task, to solve a
problem, or to follow a process. With this specific spelling game I will explain the strategy, model the procedures for the cooperative learning group,
explain how it woks, and remind the students
how to do it. This allows for the ESL student to have futher instrcutional aid before the student and group will start the procedure. In order to make the process smoother for the ESL student he will start of as cutter and then progress to gluer with aid from his peers and teacher. 3. Hearing Impaired For the hearing impaired, there are
different materials that a student can
use that is beneficial to their learning
capability. This specific topic deals
with a student who has a haring aid
along with an FM device that allows
them to hear direct instructions from
the teacher. For this type of instructional
strategy it is best to use examples and
models that allows the student to actually
see the the process that needs to be done.
This will effectively display the need for accuracy
in the spelling game lesson plan. The first step for this coorperative group with Conspicuous strategies will be:
1. The teacher will give the students the materials to use.
2. The teacher explain the strategy being used
3. The teacher will explain the order and process in which
the spelling game works.
4. The teacher will assign tasks to the students in the group
according to their abilities.
5. The teacher will then remind the students when and how
to use the materials.
6. The teacher will set the timer and have the students begin their work. Challenges of Cooperative Group Learning 1. Conflicts may arise.
2. Poor communication skills.
3. Evaluting individual performances. ACBD Method To ensure a productive cooperative learning group
you must have:

- A team charter need to be set up to ensure
that each student will participate, communicate,
respect one anothers views, and uphold the timeline
set forth by the teacher for the assignment to be done. Benefits of a Cooperative Learning Group 1. Promotes social interaction with peers.
2. Allows for students to help one another in a positive educational way. This promotes trust within the group unit.
3. Teachers student real life lesson on how to work as a group unit and strive to achieve a piece that is well formulated within the group unit. This gets the students ready for the real world and how to cohesively get along and work with co-workers.
4. Promotes a hard working ethic to achieve success. An ADHD student is most often than none an exceptional learner.They become bored very easily and need more stimulation to make the time and lesson being taught go by without becoming distracted. By the teacher changing the ADHD students role at various points the students mind is contantly being redirected to a new task. this allows him/her to stay on tract an retain the information that is needed for educational success. ABCD Method A hearing impaired child needs instuctional strategy that will enhance their other senses in order to retain the information. The best strategy here is to use the Examples and Models strategy. This will:
1. Provide visual examples that will aid the student in understanding.
2. By displayimng the steps out in written form it will allow for the children to see the directions. This will allow for the student to reference back to.
3. Displaying the materials and showing an example of how the process will work will only further advance the students understanding of the assignment. ABCD Method Conclusion In conclusion by providing different techniques and learning strategies for diverse learning, teacher have the ability to instruct them on a higher level of learning capabilities.

to Group Building 1. Accountability- that each student in the group is held accountable for their part in the assignment.
2. Resonsibility- to be responsible to contribute to the discussion and project.
3. Compromise- to learn to understand that there will be differences but to compromise when the time call for it.
4. Respect- respect peers views on issues when they differe from your own. Five Key Elements to Governing Coorperative Groups The Elements on Governing Cooperative Learning Groups 1. Make sure each group understands the assignement and what it entailes.
2.Check to make sure the students have formed an outline of the project or have discussed the assignment.
3. Check the students to see if they have set a time frame in which all materials for the project is needed or if they are working on the assignment in a timely manner.
4. Go around to each group and give pointers and suggestions that might help them. Types of Coorperative Learning Groups Informal groups- this is when the teacher just breaks the students into smaller groups for informal lectures or assignments
Formal groups- this is when the teacher sets up the groups evenly by diversitizing each group.
Base groups- these groups have been set up in advance based on the type of learners that the children are. This provides the children with a stable learning unit that they will work with the entire school year. they are depend on each other and rely on each other for support.
