Cooperative Learning (CL) has a huge potential in classrooms nowadays because it is believed to bring numerous benefits to learners. Nevertheless, cooperative-learning methods are rarely applied in chemistry classes in Vietnam due to a lack of teachers’ knowledge and skills of using CL. This article presents the structural approach to CL, which can help teachers put these methods straightforwardly into their practice.
