    I've been taking classes toward an ESL endorsement. They are really stressing cooperative learning techniques as something that works well with English Language learners. So I started using it in my class occasionally. We do a technique called Think, Pair, Share where pairs of students think about a topic, then pair with someone else and share their ideas. The pair then present the best things they thought of to the class. We have also used cooperative learning for students to fill out a KWL chart - They fill out what they already Know about a subject, what they Want to know and later fill in what they Learned - KWL. Both techniques have been useful. Since I haven't been doing this long I hope you get some other answers to your post. I kept waiting to see what others would write.
