Integrating Cooperative Learning Procedures, Solomon’s Six Types of Information and the Topic of the Tanach

When mentoring our pre-service and in-service teachers we need to describe and model both research-based and clinically tested best practices. Accordingly our mentees should know about the integration of cooperative learning procedures and Solomon’s Six Types of Information.

Accordingly, on the chart below you will find sample applications of five different cooperative learning procedures with the six types of information related to the topic of the Tanach.

The Integration of Cooperative Learning, Solomon’s Six Types of Information and the Topic of the Tanach




Six Types of Information

Content Question/Challenge

Rally Round


Write as many different facts as you can about the Tanach.



What ideas do you associate with the Tanach? Example: Wisdom

Paired Interview




Form pairs, and let each member role-play a different person in the Tanach. Examples: Abraham and Sarah. Let one member role-play that person, and let the other serve as an interviewer. Then reverse roles. Share your experiences and feelings as you role-play that person.

Round Robin Brainstorming


Brainstorm a list of people in the Tanach. Then, after recording the names of different people in the Tanach, select your favorite.

Group Discussion Using Talking Chips

Informed Opinion

Explain the reasons for the selection of your favorite person in the Tanach.

On the next post we will share how to integrate five different cooperative learning procedures with Solomon’s Six Types of Information on the topic of the Tefilah. (Prayer).
