Cooperative Learning Workshop - Blacktown

Professional Development with Gerard Alford

Cooperative learning is one of the most powerful tools in a teacher's toolkit. In terms of student achievement, it is more effective than individual or competitve learning (Hattie, 2009). It also assists with class cohesion, interpersonal relationships, social support and self-esteem (Johnson and Johnson). However, for it to work, it must be set up correctly. 

Workshop Outline:

Cooperative Learning should not be confused with group work. If students are working in an unstructured interaction, then this is group work. Cooperative learning activites, on the other hand, must have four criteria (PIME) to ensure its effectiveness. This workshop will examine the following cooperative learning activites: 

  • Silent Card Shuffle - for matching, sequencing, classifying and positioning activities
  • 1:4:Publish:Circle:Refine - for writing and creative/design tasks
  • Think:Pair:Share - allows thinking time and more thoughtful responses
  • Round Robin and Hot Potato - for brainstorming activities
  • Pairs and RAS Alert - for improved retention of a film, field trip or book
  • 3:2:1:RIQ - for consolidating information​​

Who should attend?
All classroom teachers (Primary and Secondary), Lead Teachers, Curriculum Leaders, Assistant Principals
