This website was created to compliment the Back to the Future with Cooperative Learning session presented at the 2011 eMINTS Winter Conference by Carrie Wideman and Michelle Gilmer.
If you have any comments, questions, or suggestions please contact us using the form linked to the right.
Below you will find our Presentation Documents, including the agenda, presentation file, directions for creating teams, descriptions of some cooperative learning strategies, and some sample community builders. In the Transformed Lessons folder you will find Carrie's examples of traditional lessons and how she transformed them to include cooperative learning strategies.
As our title suggests, cooperative learning is not new but it is a key component to 21st Century teaching and learning. We know you have some great strategies and structures you use to help your students learn cooperatively. Please share those great ideas in our Forum, linked in the menu to the right. Remember, Together Everyone Achieves More!
