This study examines the changes of attitudes towards group learning after being exposed to cooperative learning on a regular basis. The population of this study consists of two third grade classrooms of twenty-four children in each room. An attitude survey, developed by the researcher, is used for this study. The survey is a pre-post-post test given in one school year. The first posttest results show an increase in positive attitudes towards cooperative learning. Analysis of the survey questions are available in the study. More research needs to be done in this area with a broader population.
