Group collaboration is structured on five principles of collaboration: positive interdependence, individual accountability, explicit instruction in social skills, promotive interaction, and group processing.
First, the group tasks need to be structured so that all group members feel dependent on each other in the completion of the task, thus promoting positive interdependence.
Second, for individual accountability, the teacher needs to assure that each group member feels responsible for his or her share of work, by providing opportunities for individual reports or evaluations.
Third, the students need explicit instruction in social skills that are necessary for collaboration.
Fourth, the tasks and seat arrangements should be designed to promote interaction among group members.
Fifth, time needs to be allocated to group processing, through which group members can evaluate their collaborative work to plan future actions.
Using these principles for cooperation leads to gains in learning processes and achievements of students.
