Classroom structures determine academic achievement as well as a host of non-academic outcomes. Traditional classroom structures undermine positive social relations.

Cooperative structures, in contrast, enhance understanding of self and others, respect for differences, empathy, self esteem, as well as liking for school and classmates. Remarkably, cooperative structures improve human relations without taking time from academics. Students actually learn and retain more when cooperative structures are used.

To help you build positive peer relationships in your classroom, while maximizing student learning come learn structures like Team Interview, Agree-Disagree Line-Ups, and Timed Pair Share.
