Effect of Cooperative Learning Technique Think Pair and Share Developing Cooperation among Secondary School Students in Social Science Classes By Sandhya.S and Dr.P.B.Buelabel Bency


Students participate in cooperative learning, which is an educational technique, by working on planned projects in small groups with other classmates. The members of the groups are given instructions on how to collaborate effectively to achieve a goal, find a solution to a problem, finish a project, or manufacture a product.The purpose of this research is to investigate whether or not the think-pair-share (TPS) model of cooperative learning is successful in enhancing students’ ability to work together effectively. They will have the opportunity to practise being more forthright and sincere when sharing their opinions if they take part in the exercise known as Think-Pair-Share. This approach helps children improve their interpersonal skills as well as their communication and listening abilities, all of which are beneficial to their overall growth as individuals. Students are able to get insight from the backgrounds and points of view of their peers when they collaborate in groups of two. The members of Class IX-H participated in the study as the experimental group, and the research followed a “before” and “after” format with controls that were not equal. During the course of the analysis, the IX-L cohort served as a reference class. This study employed a method known as purposeful sampling. Collaborative data collecting amongst the students through the use of a survey that is kept anonymous. After the data have been collected, the next step is to conduct a quantitative analysis based on hypotheses. The experimental group that was given therapy had a statistically significant improvement between the “before” and “after” time periods, as shown by the findings. Even though there is a change between “before” and “after” in the non-therapy control groups, this change does not indicate improvement; rather, it indicates a worsening of the condition. As a result, it is plausible to draw the conclusion that think-pair-share (TPS) models of cooperative learning have an influence on the ability of students to collaborate with one another within the setting of social studies classrooms.
