TEAM TEACHING IN SOUTHWESTERN SECONDARY SCHOOLS.
IVINS, WILSON
A REPORT OF A SURVEY-STUDY ON TEAM TEACHING PROCEDURES IN PUBLIC SECONDARY SCHOOLS IN ARIZONA, COLORADO, AND NEW MEXICO IS PRESENTED. CURRENT PRACTICES WERE EVALUATED WHEN THERE WAS EVIDENCE OF A GENERAL AGREEMENT OR DISAGREEMENT WITH COMMONLY ACCEPTED PRINCIPLES OF SECONDARY EDUCATION. A POLL OF 440 SCHOOLS ENROLLING MORE THAN 150 STUDENTS SHOWED THAT 105 OF THE SCHOOLS WERE USING OR HAD USED TEAM TEACHING. PRINCIPALS OF THESE SCHOOLS WERE ASKED TO COMPLETE A CHECKLIST, THERE WERE EIGHTY-EIGHT RESPONDENTS. THE MAJOR FINDINGS INCLUDED--AT LEAST ONE-FOURTH OF ALL SECONDARY SCHOOLS IN THE AREA ENROLLING 150 OR MORE STUDENTS HAD USED OR WERE USING TEAM TEACHING, THERE WAS NO AGREEMENT ON A SINGLE DEFINITION OF TEAM TEACHING, THE PRIMARY OBJECTIVES OF TEAM TEACHING WERE BETTER USE OF TEACHERS AND IMPROVEMENT OF EDUCATIONAL QUALITY, MOST TEACHING TEAMS WERE IN THE BASIC SUBJECTS, THE ORGANIZATION OF TEAM TEACHING WAS USUALLY INFORMAL, STUDENT GROUPING WAS USED IN ONLY A MINORITY OF THE SCHOOLS, THE SCHOOLS USED A WIDE VARIETY AND GOOD SUPPLY OF SMALL GROUP INSTRUCTION, AND THERE HAD BEEN LITTLE SYSTEMATIC EFFORT TO COMPARE THE ACHIEVEMENT OF STUDENTS UNDER TEAM TEACHING WITH THOSE UNDER CONVENTIONAL TEACHING METHODS. REACTIONS OF PRINCIPALS TOWARD TEAM TEACHING RANGED FROM INDIFFERENCE TO ENTHUSIASM. THIS ARTICLE WAS PUBLISHED IN THE "NASSP BULLETIN," MARCH 1964.
