The purpose of this workshop was to inform Lincoln County R-III teachers of the valuable aspects of cooperative or team learning . Research has shown that students at all grade levels have benefitted both academically and socially. Also, with this learning method alternative, teachers and students alike derived pleasure from the improved relaxed atmosphere brought about by collegial learning . The workshop, staged in 3 two-hour sessions, enabled elementary, junior-high, and secondary teachers to learn about cooperative learning while being cooperative learners . They worked cooperatively on various projects which could be adapted in their own classrooms. Subsequent informal gettogethers enabled the participants to question, praise , and gain support from each other.
