The study is conducted to pilot the application of Spencer Kagan's cooperative learning model in non-English majored classrooms and to demonstrate the effectiveness of the model in increasing students’ engagement. This mixed method study was implemented with the collection of quantitative data expanded upon by qualitative data collection through a questionnaire, observation and interviews. 120 non-English majored students were chosen for the questionnaire and observation while three interviews with three teachers who were in charge of teaching English to such informant students were carried out at the end of the piloting period. The responses from the questionnaire and interviews were transcribed, and analysed in order to answer the research questions. In general, students were realized to become more engaged and motivated to complete assignments in a team setting under teachers’ instructions according to Spencer Kagan’s cooperative learning model. Implications from this study support the potential for Spencer Kagan's cooperative learning model application in not only non-English majored classrooms in Vietnam but also other levels.
