Cooperative learning is a dynamic instructional model that can teach diverse content to students at different grade levels, with students working together in small, structured, heterogeneous groups to master subject content. It has a strong research tradition, is used frequently as a professional development tool in general education and is now emerging in physical education. This book defines cooperative learning in physical education and examines how to implement cooperative learning in a variety of educational settings. The book explores cooperative learning in physical education from three main perspectives. The first, context of learning, provides descriptions of cooperative learning in different levels of education (elementary school, secondary school, and university physical education). The second, cooperative learning in the curriculum, offers case studies from teachers and researchers of their experiences of implementing cooperative learning within their own national context. The third perspective, key aspects of cooperative learning, examines how the different elements of the model have been fore-grounded in efforts to enhance learning in physical education. As the only up-to-date, international study of cooperative learning in physical education, this book is important reading for any student, researcher or teacher with an interest in PE, sport education, sport pedagogy, curriculum development or methods for learning and teaching.
