Abstract

Cooperative Learning and its usefulness in the classroom have been studied for many years. This action research involves cooperative learning strategies being utilized in a rural school district to depict its effectiveness on middle school students post COVID-19. Several strategies will be implemented to see whether or not cooperative learning has an impact on student participation and engagement, retention of material, and a re-development of social skills post COVID-19. To collect data, there will be surveys, exit slips, summative assessments, and formative assessments. The disconnection amongst students and the over-reliability on the Chromebook and other social sites has led to this action research. Students have had the inability for that physical social connection and communication and this can be re-developed through the use of cooperative learning strategies.
