A HANDBOOK OF TEAM TEACHING IN THE ELEMENTARY SCHOOLS.
Maryland State Dept. of Education, Baltimore.
TEAM TEACHING ATTEMPTS TO SPREAD TEACHER COMPETENCE TO AS MANY CHILDREN AS POSSIBLE, TO INSURE MORE EFFECTIVE TEACHING THROUGH A VARIETY OF METHODS OF GROUPING, AND TO UTILIZE INTERESTS AND TALENTS OF EACH TEACHER TO THE FULLEST EXTENT. ORGANIZATIONAL PATTERNS SHOULD VARY FROM SCHOOL TO SCHOOL, ACCORDING TO THE NEED AND INTERESTS OF THAT SCHOOL. THE MEMBERS OF THE TEAM INCLUDE--THE PRINCIPAL, WHO EXERCISES THE LEADERSHIP ROLE IN INITIATING, STIMULATING, SUPPORTING, AND EVALUATING THE PROGRAM, THE SENIOR TEACHER, WHO FUNCTIONS AS A LEADER COORDINATOR, A RESOURCE PERSON, AND A TEACHER, THE TEAM MEMBERS WHO SHARE COMMON CONCERNS AND PRACTICES TO PROVIDE BETTER LEARNING OPPORTUNITIES FOR ALL THE CHILDREN AND ASSUME RESPONSIBILITIES OUTLINED BY THE TEACHER, AND THE RESOURCE STAFF WHO SUPPLEMENTS AND ENRICHES EFFORTS BY ASSISTING WITH MATERIALS IN THEIR FIELD (ART, LIBRARY, MUSIC, AND PHYSICAL EDUCATION). PARENTS SHOULD BE ACQUAINTED WITH THE VARIOUS ASPECTS OF TEAM TEACHING PRINCIPLES AND ORGANIZATION. PLANNING SHOULD BE DONE BY THE SENIOR TEACHER, IN COOPERATION WITH THE PRINCIPAL AND THE TEAM MEMBERS. A CERTAIN AMOUNT OF RECORDKEEPING IS NECESSARY, AND EVALUATIONS OF THE PROGRAM MADE TO DETERMINE EFFECTIVENESS.
