Team Teaching. A Descriptive and Evaluative Study of a Program for the Primary Grades.
Wall, Harvey R.; Reasoner, Robert W.
Team teaching was introduced in a summer academic program for grades one through three in Concord, California. Each team was composed of three or four teachers and a teacher aide. A total of 410 children were assigned to four teams, and curriculum was basically enrichment oriented with assistance for those with remedial problems. The curriculum included reading, mathematics, music, Spanish, social studies, art, physical education, and folk dancing. After a period of experimenting with organization, teams developed creativity, flexibility, and productivity by adapting curriculum to emerging needs of the children. The principal's role of coordinator strengthened interpersonal relationships within teams. This document describes and evaluates the program. (DO)
