Cooperative Learning in the Classroom: Putting it into Practice

'What is cooperative learning? Why should teachers use it in the classroom? What are the benefits? In eight accessible chapters, Wendy Jolliffe, lecturer in primary education at Hull University, outlines the theory and practice of cooperative learning and shows how the "outcomes and aims of Every Child Matters (2004) can be clearly mapped to the advantages of cooperative learning."... A useful resource for teachers, headteachers, trainee teachers and support staff' - Learning and Teaching Update 


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. This inclusive approach to teaching is very much in tune with current initiatives such as Every Child Matters and Excellence and Enjoyment and the focus on learning styles.

  • An explanation of the key factors that make cooperative learning work
  • A step-by-step approach to implementing cooperative learning in the classroom
  • Advice on how to measure the effectiveness of cooperative learning
  • Guidance for using cooperative learning to encourage effective talk
  • Links to supporting children's emotional intelligence
  • Ideas for practical activities
  • An action plan and programme for whole school professional development


An invaluable resource for individual teachers using cooperative learning techniques in classrooms, this book will also be of interest to headteachers, trainee teachers and learning support staff.
