An Annotation by Holly Waterman

There are six benefits as to why cooperative learning can be an effective teaching strategy:

  • Students who are able to take responsibility for their own learning through cooperative learning gain positive attitudes towards school,
  • have higher self esteem, and
  • build race relations among a mixed variety of diversity.
  • These together gain greater student achievement.
  • Cooperative learning is also an inexpensive and
  • interactive way of teaching away from the textbook.
