 Reciprocity and Cooperation Among Students

Education theorists suggest that learning is enhanced when it is more like a team effort than a solo race. Superior learning is collaborative and social rather than competitive and isolated. This principle rings true in the traditional classroom; it is also true in the Sabbath School setting. Working with others tends to heighten involvement in learning. Sharing one's own ideas and responding to others' perspectives focuses on concentration and deepens understanding. So, as much as possible in your context, encourage reciprocity and cooperation among your students.
