After reading Chapter 5, I had a better understanding of collaborative learning. Collaborative learning is used during "partner sharing, group discussions, literature or inquiry circles, book clubs, Socratic Seminars, problem or project-based learning, as well as disciplinary and interdisciplinary projects" (148). The advantages of using collaboration in classrooms revolve around being socially constructed, meaning that students will prepare for the real world since they will have to collaborate or communicate with others. Furthermore, collaboration is a great tool to use in classrooms. I think that in my future classroom, I would use collaboration during partner and small group work since that could be used for most lessons. A disciplinary tool within collaboration is the use of vocabulary. Using vocabulary within the disciplinaries and collaboration is important since it "gives students plenty of opportunities to use new vocabulary in relevant settings" (150). Furthermore, using vocabulary during collaboration activities allows students to complete graphic organizers and "take turns creating word walls for specific units" (150).
