A Guide to Improving Skills of Teachers in: (a) Team Building, (b) Team Operations, (c) Team Planning, (d) Team Evaluation.
This guide is a product of two teams of teachers who worked together to develop teaming techniques for open space schools. The purpose of the guide is to outline suggested steps to follow as various team teaching possibilities are implemented. The guide is organized in the following sections: (1) team building, (2) team operations, (3) team planning, and (4) team evaluation. The first section states that after the individuals have been grouped for teaming there exists a series of steps necessary for the continuing process of building the team and maintaining its effectiveness. The steps are then listed along with decisions the team must make. The second section lists the policies and rules to be considered when a group is establishing its operational framework. The section on planning discusses the process involved in assessment of students needs, and presents steps and procedures to meet these needs. The final section states that evaluation is the key to the successful operation of any team. Several evaluation forms are included as examples of the different ways of evaluating teams. (RC)
