The Inservice Education Potential of Team Planning-Teaching.
Gaskell, William
Peabody Journal of Education, v45 n3 p152-55 Nov 1967
Multigrade planning-teaching teams, initiated in the laboratory school of Central Washington State College, have proved effective in improving inservice education. The team concept is based upon the assumptions that the teacher must know his students and, also, have some degree of specialization in the various subject areas. Each multigrade team is responsible for guiding three class-sized groups of students in consecutive grades through a 3-year sequence. The teams meet regularly for varying lengths of time and each member of a team provides leadership in a subject area by informing other members about current research and practices and by giving direction to instructional planning. Continuing inservice education then occurs automatically through information exchange, and problems in particular areas of instruction are carried out by the team "specialist." (LH)
