Overview

Since publication of the first edition of this best-selling book in 1986, cooperative learning has become a widely accepted strategy in U.S. schools. Now, with increased research and development, properly designed groupwork has evolved into a powerful tool for teaching all students, especially those from diverse backgrounds. The time has come to bring teachers up-to-date on the latest developments in the field. Designing Groupwork combines easy-to-follow theory with examples and teaching strategies that are adaptable to any situation. The advantages and dilemmas of groupwork are discussed, as well as it's use in multiability and bilingual classrooms, and step-by-step approaches to successful planning, implementation, and evaluation of groupwork activities. This Second Edition includes new material on skill-building for more advanced students, on the development of roles for older and younger students, on how to use multiple ability treatments and how to avoid common pitfalls, on cooperation and anti-social behavior, and on a new treatment for status problems. Drawing on years of research and teaching experience, Elizabeth Cohen has written a valuable and sensitive book for students of education and instruction both the elementary and secondary levels, and for anyone working in the field of education.

Elizabeth Cohen
With the selection of The House on Beartown Road -- a poignant chronicle of her experience caring for both an infant child and a father with Alzheimer's -- as a Barnes & Noble Discover Great New Writers selection, journalist Elizabeth Cohen is poised to become a writer that will long be remembered in readers' hearts.

Good To Know

In her interview with Barnes & Noble.com, Cohen shared some fun facts about herself:

"My first job was at a gas station in Albuquerque, New Mexico. I was fired for reading. I once worked at an elite bookstore in SoHo. Was fired for reading. My best job ever was as editorial assistant to Anna Quindlen. She would call me every couple days and ask me to find out the lifespan of the average gorilla, the gross national product of Thailand, or the phone number for the Dalai Lama. Stuff like that. I am serious. That was actually my job. I lucked out."

"I used to have hobbies like skiing and hiking. These days I play with my daughter, Ava. We go to the park. We read. We go swimming together on Saturdays. She is the great joy in my life now. I bought a kayak two years ago. I'd like to use it someday."
