PROFILES OF SIGNIFICANT SCHOOLS--SCHOOLS FOR TEAM TEACHING.
CLINCHY, EVANS
THE SCHOOLS CONSIDERED WERE 10 REPRESENTATIVE EXAMPLES OF RECENT AND PLANNED ELEMENTARY AND JUNIOR HIGH SCHOOLS DESIGNED TO HOUSE TEAM TEACHING PROGRAMS. DISCUSSED WERE THE CONCEPTS OF TEAM TEACHING, THE DEMANDS IT PLACES ON SCHOOL CONSTRUCTION AND ORGANIZATION, AND METHODS BY WHICH THESE CONCEPTS AND DEMANDS WERE SATISFIED IN THE 10 SCHOOLS. GENERAL CONSIDERATIONS FOR TEAM TEACHING WERE SUGGESTED. ALL TEAM PROGRAMS INVOLVED MOVEMENT, INCLUDING THE FORMING AND DISPERSING OF LARGE AND SMALL GROUPS. BUILDINGS SHOULD MAKE SUCH GROUPING AND MOVEMENT NATURAL AND EASY, WHILE AVOIDING CHAOS. TEAM PROGRAMS GRAVITATED TOWARD A NONGRADED ORGANIZATION, WITH GREATER EMPHASIS ON INDIVIDUAL STUDY. THIS TENDENCY INDICATED THE NEED FOR THE ENLARGEMENT OF THE SCHOOL LIBRARY INTO A CENTRAL INSTRUCTIONAL RESOURCE CENTER WITH AN INCREASINGLY WIDE RANGE OF MATERIALS. THE INCREASED AMOUNT OF COOPERATIVE PLANNING AND PREPARATION WHICH A TEAM PROGRAM INVOLVES DEMANDED SPECIAL TEAM HEADQUARTERS SPACE AND SPECIAL TEACHER WORKROOMS. TEAM PROGRAMS SEEMED TO BE MOVING TOWARD INCREASED USE OF AUDIOVISUAL AIDS AND TEACHING MACHINES, AND TEAM SCHOOLS SHOULD BE DESIGNED WITH SUCH DEVICES IN MIND.
