Summary:
Cooperative learning has been demonstrated by research to be one of the most highly effective teaching strategies, but simply putting students in a group is not enough. The authors of The Power of the Social Brain see interdependent thinking as the missing piece of the collaborative puzzle. This authoritative book provides research from the neurosciences and education along with practical strategies to help groups function more effectively and thoughtfully. By adding the cognitive dimension to cooperative learning, this book will help readers apply strategies of successful group work in classrooms and professional educational learning communities.
