It utilized the descriptive correlational research design. In order to have the essential information needed in this study, a questionnaire, divided five (5) parts that would determine the students’ significant experiences during their cooperative learning, the learners’ attitudes towards Cooperative Learning, and the contributions of Cooperative Learning to the content literacy. The results showed that most of the respondents belonged to 20-21 years old and dominantly females. The majority of the respondents are Roman Catholics.

Students strongly agreed that cooperative learning provides the opportunity to learn the importance of teamwork and acknowledge the individual differences among learners thus enhances their social skills. It is clearly implied that the students agreed that Cooperative Learning is meaningful and interesting when it is used as a teaching-learning strategy.
