In Cooperative Learning social skills simply form an integral part of learning - yet improvement extends far beyond the classroom.
Cooperative Learning naturally lessens disruptive behavior and social isolation. It integrates precise language needed to explain, ask for help, and respectfully preserve personal boundaries. These are crucial transferable skills, needed for life in a multicultural, democratic Britain and in the 21st century workplace.
Cooperative Learning helps teachers and behavior teams uncover which social skills are needed in classes and by individual students, and integrates systematic practice with subject learning in every lesson.
By integrating SMSC, PSHE and Citizenship, Cooperative Learning frees valuable resources.
The content-void nature of Cooperative Learning means your school may tailor social interaction to counter extremism and promote “fundamental British values” through personalised reflection and choice.
