Abstract

The issue with cooperative, or collaborative, learning is not whether it is a panacea to all ills; it is not. Rather, the issue is one of emphasis among classroom methods. David W. Johnson and Roger T. Johnson of the Cooperative Learning Center at the University of Minnesota place cooperative learning in perspective as one of four possible learning structures: competitive, cooperative, individualistic, or structure free (1974). They say that each type of structure has a place in education depending on the objectives of the lesson; however, individualistic, competitive structures are the most common structures in present classroom use.
