Petition Trial cooperative learning courses in Welsh comprehensives
According to evidence, taken from the work of David W. Johnson and Roger T. Johnson (2009), cooperative learning has been shown to build more positive attitudes towards school and working towards the completion of tasks, along with promoting greater long-term retention of information and more creative thinking, when compared to individual study.
Further research from Johnson and Johnson (1998) indicates that cooperative learning promotes student interdependence, higher interaction with classmates and a healthier relationship with deadlines and mental health.
Bearing all the above information in mind, I am calling upon the government to trial cooperative learning courses into Welsh comprehensive schools, to promote cooperation, interdependence, greater enjoyment of education and greater rewards from learning.
