Cooperative Learning SmartCard
Kagan’s approach to cooperative learning is summarized on this colorful, laminated SmartCard. We highly recommend this handy little quick-reference card to anyone purchasing the book, Cooperative Learning. On the front of the card, you’ll pick up tips on how to tighten up your cooperative learning lessons using PIES. On the center spread you’ll find Kagan’s 6 Key Concepts to successful cooperative learning. It includes the answers to the most frequently asked questions about using Kagan. On the back of the card, there’s a list of Kagan Structures to assist you in lesson planning. Need a structure for introducing your lesson? Or how about one that engages the visual/spatial intelligence? Or want a teambuilding or classbuilding structure idea? Kagan Structures are categorized for you to make lesson planning a snap.
Select a student with the Student Selector. Select a team with the Team Selector. Or select any student on any team by giving both spinners a whirl. A terrific teacher tool to equalize student selection and to keep everyone accountable for learning.

TeamMats Class Set: ManageMats & Fan-N-Pick Mats
In this class set, you receive double-sided mats. One side is a ManageMat. Each team places a ManageMat in the center of the team table. With a glance at their mats, students know every teammate's number (1 to 4). They know who is their Face Partner, Shoulder Partner, and Color Partner. And they know who's Partner A and Partner B each time they pair up. When you call for Student #3 on each team to stand, to start, or to collect the team materials, everyone knows exactly who needs to do what. When you tell students to pair up with their Face Partner and Partner A will solve the first problem and Partner B will coach, no one is confused. The other side is a Fan-N-Pick mat. Fan-N-Pick is a cooperative learning review structure students play using question or review cards on any topic. The mat leads students through this interactive structure, ensuring everyone keeps actively involved! No one tunes out so everyone learns. Manage team and pair interactions like a pro with the ManageMat. Create power-packed thinking and review sessions with the Fan-N-Pick Mat. Two awesome mats in one!
Let's face it, forming good cooperative learning teams can be a chore. Not any more! To create effective teams, we must juggle a lot of variables: We want teams of four, but must form some teams of three or five to handle "extra" students. We want two boys and two girls per team, but when we run out of balanced sex teams we want same sex teams so the solo boy or girl is not given too much or too little attention. We want a high, high-medium, low-medium, and low ability student on each team to optimize tutoring and achievement. Creating teams can be a brain-racking, time-consuming process. Now, you simply click a button. TeamTools takes your class info and recommends teams for you. If you like the recommended teams, you save, print, or display them for your class. If you're not happy with the suggested teams, you push a button to try again, or fine-tune the teams yourself by moving students around. Forming flexible groups for differentiated instruction is also a snap. TeamTools gives you six ways to form teams, six ways to form pairs, and two ways to split the class into two teams. You can use TeamTools for up to eight different classrooms. Create and manage teams like a pro with TeamTools!
