BeschreibungInteraction in Cooperative Groups: The Theoretical Anatomy of Group Learning brings together current, related research from education, developmental psychology, and social psychology in an approach that is both integrative and analytical. Its intent is to provide an understanding of the dynamics of underlying processes that are fundamental to group interaction and its outcomes. The book is divided into four sections: 1.Developmental foundations and the social construction of knowledge; 2. Social skills and classroom factors influencing peer interactions; 3. The effects of task and reward structure on academic achievement; and 4. Factors influencing the promotion of positive intergroup relationships. Additionally, the editors provide an integrative conclusion with recommendations for implementation in applied settings, as well as a concise overview of the contributions.
