The pattern of research findings supports the utilityof cooperative learning methods in general for increasing student achievement, positiverace relations in desegregated schools, mutual concern among students, student self-esteem, and other positive outcomes.

Cooperative learning (CL) has been found to be a highly effective instructional approachin education in general and this has been confirmed with regard to second language (L2)learning as well. This article investigates reasons for the success of CL from a psychological perspective, focusing on two interrelated processes: the unique groupdynamics of CL classes and the motivational system generated by peer cooperation. It isargued that the affective domain of CL plays a crucial role in the educational potential of the method. This paper summarizes the specific factors that contribute to the promotionof learning gains. While the analysis concerns cooperatively structured learning only, it isassumed that the processes described have a broader relevance to understanding thesuccess of peer collaboration in general.
