Our first unit is Cooperation games. Cooperative games allow students to work together to make decisions based on creative thinking, communication, and collaboration. As there aren’t any right or wrong answers (just strategies), students build better relationships with other team members as they struggle, deal with failure, and eventually work to master the problem presented. Throughout this process, students are critically thinking of their strategies and making quick decisions, while they are verbally and physically interacting with one another and, therefore, developing their cognitive abilities. As students try out various strategies and assess the outcomes, they are becoming more self-confident, learning to deal with stressful situations, and understand the importance of working together as a team to be successful.
