Cooperative Thinking: LEARN Strategy

Author(s): D. Sue Vernon, Jean B. Schumaker, and Donald D. Deshler

Publication Info: Edge Enterprises, 1999

The LEARN Strategy was designed to enable students to work in teams to learn together. Each step promotes creative cooperation; students think together to generate ideas to help them learn. Students learn how to organize information both as members of a team and as independent learners

Research results indicated that students in the experimental classes performed a significantly higher percentage of study behaviors than comparison students in their cooperative study groups at the end of the school year. Experimental group pretest scores averaged 18 percent and posttest scores averaged 70 percent. The comparison group pretest scores averaged 27 percent and posttest scores averaged 35 percent.
