The use of cooperative learning strategies in some inclusion experiences in multicultural classes


The present paper reports the results of a search, still in progress, focused on the fulfillment of intervention of inclusive teaching, based on the cooperative learning method, in multicultural classes of some Comprehensive Schools  (C.S.) in Southern Lazio. The initial project has the aim to integrate foreign children and to improve socials skills in their classrooms.   It has been carried out and completed in 4 classes of the Comprehensive School of Amaseno (FR) and Fondi (LT) and in 2 classrooms of Primary School of C.S. of Cassino 1 (FR), involving in total 104 students. Even though we don’t want to say that the results of this experience are valid for wider populations, we can confirm that the teaching activities fulfilled in this project produced  positive outcomes.
