Aichi University of Education:

Cooperative Structures and Language Learning

Date: Wednesday, September 17th, 2003 Time: 10:50 AM - 12:20 PM

Speaker: Spencer Kagan

Research reveals cooperative structures create greater student motivation, higher student achievement, effective classroom management, and better interpersonal relationships among students and between students and teacher. Cooperative structures create an active and effective learning environment, a well-organized but supportive setting for diverse kinds of learners, and mutual respect among learners. In this workshop you will learn cooperative learning structures that improve learning in any subject matter (including native and foreign languages, science, math, and other content areas) effectively. Remarkably, the structures take no special planning or change in curriculum. They are not something new to teach-- they are a more efficient way to teach. Come learn structures such as Blackboard Share, RallyTable, and Simultaneous RoundTable. You can use these structures as part of any lesson to promote academic success, language learning, mutual respect, and better social relations between students of various abilities and temperaments.
This presentation is part of the Dr. Spencer Kagan's Japan tour.
