Does Team Teaching really improve learning? You bet it does. Not only is Team Teaching a proven teaching strategy it also helps teachers to learn to work together for a common purpose. It goes without saying that a team can be hard to be apart of if there is a kink in the process. Excellent collegue leadership and in-tuned Administration are a plus.
While reading Leaders of Learning by Richard DuFour I found the 4 P's of success in people working together for student and school achievement.
" Success doesn't just happen. It's the result of 4 P's, Planning, Preparation, Performance and Perseverence."
Food for thought.
