grade teachers) recently had training on cooperative learning provided by a local
university. You arranged for this training and you support the ideas behind this
approach as a way to develop higher order thinking skills on the part of your school‟s
students. You have just received a phone call from a high administrator (your boss). He
tells you that he and several other administrators have been getting calls from parents
complaining about your school‟s “cooperative learning experiment”. In addition you
had gotten some calls earlier from parents complaining about the teaching approach,
but you did not take them seriously and you tried to explain the approach to parents.

well. However the teachers believe that the students are learning better with the
approach, particularly the slower students. You decide to talk to parents and they tell
you the following:

needs to learn to compete‟

My daughter does all the work for the group and it is not fair‟
Children in the group are unfriendly to my son; they don’t include him and he hates
How would you respond to this situation? (500 words)
