Lesson One Reflection
1. According to the text, what are the benefits of cooperative learning (reference Cooperative
Learning chapters 3 and 4 or 2009 chapters 3, 4, and 5)?
Cooperative learning allows students to learn along with their peers and not by
themselves. Cooperative learning not only helps teachers, but also helps the teacher to
manage the classroom and see which students need extra help. There are activities
teachers can do with students
2. Compare/contrast cooperative structures and group work.
Both cooperative structures and group work are the same because students must work
together to produce a product. Every student brings something to their group.
Cooperative structures require everyone to participate no one is left out there is
encouragement and constant physical activity so everyone stays alert. In group work, no
one is held accountable everyone does their own thing. Students argue rather than
encourage one another.
3. In your own words, define the seven critical factors for learning.
Engagement- the way a teacher gets the students attention either through signals or verbally.
Repetition- Going over material that has been taught and students can answer. Adding material
to a previous concept.

Input Quantity- Giving students new information over new content and allowing them to
absorb it.
Coherence- Assessing students over previous material or allowing students to express prior
knowledge on content while expanding on what they already know.
Timing- Adjusting subjects based on when students learn best. Allowing enough time for
students to work in groups or individual work.
Error Correction- students can make mistakes yet the teacher gives feedback and reassures
students.
Emotional States- Getting students attention while making them feel excited, or curious about
the content being taught. Getting students in the mood to teach a lesson either by playing music,
videos, or physical activity.
4. In your cooperative learning experience with Lesson One, what basic principles of
cooperative learning were present? Provide example of each (reference CL Chapter 4; 2009
version Chapter 5)
All the basic principles were present in our lesson one. For positive interdependence
students worked and assured one another. Individual accountability each student wrote
down on their own paper what they knew or learned. Equal Participation each student
interacted when structures were present for example mix- pair share. Simultaneous
interaction students are learning material and they participate in every activity.
5. In your Lesson One experience, which cooperative learning basic principle was missing or
weakest and why was that principle missing/weak?

I believe our principle for positive interdependence was our weakest a lot of them stick to their
group to partner up. We could have made them move around before letting them partner up.
