Maybe I've missed something in this discussion (quite possible as there are
still about 25 unread messages waiting for me), but are people actually
saying that cooperative learning implies that no one is permitted to speak
to the entire class at once? If anyone happens to know whose message made
this implication, please let me know. Apparently I've a lot of catching up
to do.
