Educators love the idea of cooperative learning. Working together is an important skill to have in school, for a career, and in life. Use this free agreement sheet as a part of your classrooms cooperative learning to assign roles to your teams. When we first experimented with this "buy-in" sheet, it took about three days for students to learn their rolls. In the end, students learned that collaboration is about hearing everyone's ideas and deciding together how to move forward with a project. We hope you will incorporate cooperative learning into your class projects.
