Kagan Learning Strategies
What is Kagan?
Kagan involves a range of different ways that children can work together (structures).
The structures require every child to take part frequently in every lesson. They are fun and children love taking part. It means that children cooperate with each other.
Using Kagan is an extremely successful teaching strategy in which small teams of children (usually teams of 4) work together towards a learning goal.
They may also be working with partners or the whole class.
Each child in a team is responsible not only for learning what is taught but also for helping teammates learn, thus creating an atmosphere of achievement. Children work through their task until all group members successfully understand and complete their work.
