Studies have shown that cooperative learning promotes higher achievement than competitive and individualistic learning structures across all age levels, subject areas, and almost all tasks.

  • Positive Interdependence
  • Individual Accountability
  • Equal Participation
This is based on the work of Dr Spencer Kagan.
