Team Teaching at Upper Arlington School.
Jackson, Annette R.
English Association of Ohio Bulletin, v9 n2 pl,3-4 May 1968
Team teaching has been used for 4 years in the 10th-grade English classes at Upper Arlington High School near Columbus, Ohio. Units are prepared, presented, and evaluated by teachers working together voluntarily. A 6-day American literature unit introducing Romanticism has been particularly successful. The contrasts between Neoclassicism and Romanticism are illustrated through recordings of music and slides of paintings, sculpture, and architecture, as well as lectures. The unit culminates in the showing of a film on the Cathedral at Chartres. In addition to regular classroom discussion, both large lectures in the auditorium and closed circuit television are used. This kind of introductory unit places literature in its proper artistic and historical contexts and increases student understanding and retention through the use of visual materials. The pooling of the knowledge of a number of teachers improves the quality of information taught to students, and allows a teacher to concentrate on one particular part of a unit. (DL)
