Putting it into Practice
'Each chapter ends with practical activities, professional development activities, a 'points to remember' box and references for further reading. A useful resource for teachers, headteachers, trainee teachers and support staff' -
Ian Hall, Learning and Teaching
'The book is a well-written and non-threatening guide through the minefield of introducing a new pedagogical mindset...At last, teachers have a 'how-to' for co-operative learning, so now there are no excuses not to do it!'
- Journal of Co-operative Studies
