Research on Team Teaching: Study of Human Interaction Variables in Successful and Unsuccessful Teacher Teams.
Borg, Walter R.
Team Teaching, v1 n2 p1-2 Oct 1966
An exploratory study was devised to determine those factors which affect the success of team teaching. Questionnaire responses from school principals and teachers in teams and data derived from personality tests of participants in six schools selected for the study were analyzed. Both principals and teachers who were members of teams contributed information concerning types of programs which they had, their major problems in team teaching, and their perceptions of the characteristics of successful team teachers (such as adaptability, flexibility, subject matter knowledge, cooperativeness, consideration, and readiness to accept criticism). An additional analysis of secondary school team teachers' planning sessions revealed that effective members of the team participated more than did less effective members. (SP)
