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.
