Based on the premise that many minds are better than one, this revised edition of Farmer's popular book helps you understand, develop, and implement cooperative learning activities with middle and high school students. Recent findings about cooperative learning are incorporated into the strategies, as well as such trends and developments as team planning, outcome-based assessment, information literacy, and the new national guidelines for library media programs. Farmer has also added a number of new activities and detailed lesson plans, many technology based, in each of the content areas. Multifaceted projects are introduced to highlight the possibility of in-depth student work centered on resource-based research. A wonderful source for lesson plans, this book also serves as a ready-reference tool.
