I have been teaching in Philadelphia's inner city for the past 8 years. I have taught 1st, 2nd, 4th and 6th grade. After teaching regular ed for 7 years, I moved to an Autistic Support Classroom this year (grades 3-5). I love it!
I am lucky enough that our school uses the Kagan cooperative learning model throughout the entire school. So, I was trained by Kagan directly. We use cooperative learning every day in our content areas as well as to develop students socially.
