  • This month in Counseling class we learned about cooperation.  We discussed what cooperation means- getting along and working with others.   The students were asked to give examples of cooperation.  We also talked about what can happen when students do not work together.  There can be conflict, frustration, and the work may NOT get done. 
  • The students worked cooperatively in small groups.  They had to work together to see how many words they could make using the letters from the word "Cooperation".  After the activity we talked about what happened in the groups.  Did eveyrone participate?  Was everyone able to their their ideas?  How would you rate the level of cooperation in your group?  Two heads are better than one--hopefully the students learned that working together can help solve problems easier and faster than having to do things by oneself.
  • Learning to cooperate not only helps them in class, but also with friends and at home.  Being able to work successfully in groups helps them to get along with others.  Cooperation is a life skill that will help them throughout life.
