Cooperative Learning Freebies and Resources from Laura Candler
What children can do together today,
they can do alone tomorrow.
~ Lev Vygotsky, 1962  

Cooperative learning is a powerful teaching strategy that’s more than just a passing fad. Research has shown that when implemented properly, students in cooperative learning classrooms outperform their peers in traditional classrooms. The key is knowing how to implement the strategies to foster interaction while making sure all students are held accountable.

Cooperative Learning Printables and Other Resources

Dr. Spencer Kagan developed the “structural” approach to cooperative learning, and I’ve found it to be extremely effective. I highly recommend his book Cooperative Learning which is available from Amazon.com. I’m the author of five cooperative learning books published by Kagan, and you can find those links at the bottom of this page. The activity sheets and printables below are helpful if you already know how to use Cooperative Learning strategies. If not, I would suggest reading some of Kagan’s books to get you started.
