Cooperative learning can be seen in virtually any K-12 classroom. It involves the teacher deliberately pairing students in groups according to ability. Within the groups, each student is assigned a duty (i.e. recorder, facilitator, presenter) which ensures that everyone contributes to the goal. Cooperative learning is effective when each student's learning style is addressed.
