Frustration, Turmoil and Discomfort in Team Teaching.
Wood, Robert E.
Team Teaching, v1 n9 p1-2 May 1967
The most important prerequisite to group creativity in curriculum development is a climate of free inquiry, free expression, and objective criticism. An atmosphere such as this develops from the personal security, active participation, and creativity of each team member. A period of negative feelings caused by frustration and failure when the individual educational philosophies of team members are criticized and torn apart is necessary to the eventual unification of the team; when the pieces are reassembled into a group philosophy, the team can create a new curriculum which will be a team product.
