The Teacher's Role in Implementing Cooperative Learning in the Classroom provides readers with a comprehensive overview of the challenges and issues with clear guidelines on how teachers can embed cooperative learning into their classroom curricula to obtain the benefits widely attributed to this pedagogical practice. Cooperative learning is defined as students working together to “attain group goals that cannot be obtained by working alone or competitively” (Johnson, Johnson, & Holubec, ). The main purpose of cooperative learning is to actively involve students in the learning process; a level of student empowerment which is not possible in a lecture : Guinevere Palmer, Rachel Peters, Rebecca Streetman.

Formulate objectives for the learning experience 2. Determine the cooperative learning method to use and construct the activity 3. Decide group size and structure 4.

Cooperative Learning is about structuring lesson activities to encourage pupils to work collaboratively in pairs or small groups to support each other to improve their learning.

However, if we are assessing other areas of achievement (e.g., tests of knowledge, homework assignments, etc), but not the cooperative learning activities, we make the statement, in a very real and material way, that the quality of effort during the cooperative learning has little importance, regardless of what we may say.
