An Experiment in Team Teaching.
Rodgers, Judy; Herring, Lynda
This paper describes an experiment in team teaching involving 25 students in a Spanish language class on the high school level. Team teaching was found to be particularly suited to vocabulary presentation, testing, culture teaching, grammar explanations, dramatization of stories and fables, pronunciation drills, and classroom conversation. It was also found that both teachers and students benefitted from team teaching in a variety of ways. Ideas, tasks, grading, and planning were shared; and teachers were motivated by peer cooperation to strive for greater excellence in teaching. Students were more highly motivated and preferred team teaching over the traditional approach. Finally, team teaching made possible more individual attention, greater variety of activities, and a more informal classroom atmosphere. The following project materials are provided: a room plan; lesson plans; independent study project topics, and student evaluation questionnaires. (Author/AM)
