Abstract: This article defines the "what" and the "why" of co-operative learning and explores how to promote co-operative learning. Co-operative learning is a form of group work which is structured so people learn from each other. It has the following elements, positive interdependence, individual responsibility and accountability, student-student interaction, and suitable tasks. Co-operative learning can promote academic achievement and have universally positive effects in citizenship and character education. Sound thinking is a behavior we look for that correspond to the goals of citizenship and character education.
