The Cooperative Group Learning Strategy comes from the concept of Cooperative Learning that is based on the constructivist approach where the role of the teacher is as a facilitator and it emphasized social interaction among one student and other students and students and teacher in a classroom. Cooperative Learning is largely based on the idea that students learn through social contexts. The purpose of cooperative learning groups is to make each member a stronger individual in his or her own right. Johnson, Johnson, & Smith (in Tsay & Brady, 2010, p.80) suggested that Cooperative Learning is more than simply ?working in groups,? and should include (a) positive interdependence where team members are reliant on one another to achieve a common goal, and the entire group suffers the consequences if one member fails to do his or her work; (b) face-to-face promotive interaction where, although some of the group work may be done on an individual basis, most of the tasks are performed through an interactive process in which each group member provides feedback, challenges one another, and teaches and encourages his or her group mates; (c) individual accountability where each member of the group is held accountable for doing his or her share of the work; (d) appropriate use of collaborative skills where students are provided with the opportunity to develop and implement trust-building, leadership, decision-making, communication, and conflict management skills; and (e) group processing in which team members establish group goals, the assessment of their performance as a team occurs periodically, and they often identify changes that need to be made in order for the group to function more effectively
