The results show that students who have opportunities towork collaboratively, learn faster and more efficiently, have greater retention, and feel more positive about the learning experience.CONTENT
What Is Cooperative Learning?
Cooperative learning is A set of instructional strategies that help learners meet specificlearning and social interaction objectives in structured groups to reach specific learning andsocial interaction objectives (Eggen, 2004, p. 431). A instructional use of small groups so thatstudents work together to maximize their own and each other's learning. Each member of a teamis responsible not only for learning what is taught but also for helping teammates learn, thuscreating an atmosphere of achievement. Students work through the assignment until all groupmembers successfully understand and complete it. In cooperative learning situations there is a positive interdependence among students' goal attainments; students perceive that they can reachtheir learning goals if and only if the other students in the learning group also reach their goals.

As Egen says in his book (Eggen, 2004, p. 433) students of specific ethnic group tend to spend most of their time together,so they don’t learn that all of us are much more alike than we are different. Therefore as a teacher we use cooperative learning to solve this problem.
 How to implement cooperative learning in the class?

Which students will be in a group together?
Student can decide, group can be formed on the basis of same commonality, group can formed at random, and teachers can decide. Teachers play anessential role in helping group function well.

In group,every member must feel a responsibility to learn and participate in the group, and students must
