“Dr Spencer Kagan has spent the last 40 years researching and developing a range of cooperative learning structures that provides a fast and effective way to get your new students to gel as a group.
They are all based on PIES – Positive, interdependence, Individual accountability, Equal participation, and Simultaneous interaction – which means that the structures are designed to
ensure every student has to take part, make progress and develop the so-called ‘soft’ skills of
communication and teamwork.
The activities can be tailored to a range of prose, drama and poetry texts, and as such can slot into any scheme of work for any age group.”
