Cooperative learning in the classroom by David W Johnson( Book )

7 editions published in 1994 in English and held by 537 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book provides specific strategies for the classroom teacher beginning to use cooperative learning or improving the use of cooprative learning. It explains conceptually what cooperative learning is and what makes it work. Cooperative learning is presented as a technique that helps raise the achievement of all students; helps build positive relationships among students; and gives students experiences necessary for healthy social, psychological, and cognitive development. Cooperative learning replaces the mass-production, competitive organizational structure of most classrooms and schools with a team-based, high-performance organizational structure. In most classrooms, it is recommended that cooperative learning be used 60 to 80 percent of the time. The teacher's role in implementing cooperative learning includes: (1) pre-instructional decisions (selecting instructional materials and objectives, assigning students to groups, arranging the classroom, and assigning roles); (2) taskwork and teamwork (explaining the academic task, structuring positive interdependence, and specifying desired behaviors); (3) executing the cooperative lesson, which includes monitoring students' behavior and providing closure; and (4) post-lesson activities (evaluating the quality and quantity of learning, and analyzing group effectiveness).

Academic controversy : enriching college instruction through intellectual conflict by David W Johnson( Book )

8 editions published between 1996 and 1997 in English and held by 526 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The thesis of this book is that intellectual conflict is an important and powerful instructional tool which should become part of day-to-day student life in colleges and universities.

In eight chapters, the book covers such topics as: what constructive conflict is; why it is important; avoidance of intellectual conflict; what academic controversy is; the inevitability of controversy; what faculty needs to know to manage controversy; using academic controversy in instruction; how controversy works--process, debate, and concurrence seeking; the instructor's role in structuring academic controversy and creating a cooperative context; preparing a position and required social and cognitive skills; advocating a position (presenting opposing positions and perspectives, caucusing, and challenging and defending a position); making decisions (reversing perspectives, synthesizing, and integrating); and the need for controversy

Constructive controversy : theory, research, practice by David W Johnson( Book )

12 editions published in 2015 in English and held by 323 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Why do people make decisions based on their own perspective without considering alternative points of view? Do differences of opinion enhance or obstruct critical thinking? Is it wise to seek out people who disagree with you and listen to their objections to your conclusions? Focusing on the theory, research, and application of constructive controversy, this book analyses the nature of disagreement among members of decision-making groups, project teams, academic study groups, and other groups that are involved in solving problems. Johnson demonstrates that this theory is one of the most effective methods of enhancing creativity and innovation, decision making, teaching, and political discourse. The book includes entertaining and intriguing examples of how constructive controversy has been used in a variety of historical periods to advance creativity, achieve innovations, and guide democracies. It will be welcomed by students in the fields of social psychology, management/business studies, education, and communication studies"--Résumé de l'éditeur
