Review of the Literature on Team-Teaching in Mathematics. Teacher Corps Mathematics Work/Study Team. Working Paper No. 3.
Begle, E.G.; And Others
This document is a collection of abstracts of research studies on team teaching in mathematics. The research reviewed for this paper revealed little difference between team teaching and traditional instruction. Some trends suggested by the literature review are summarized according to grade level--elementary, junior high, or post-junior high. The majority of available research dealt with elementary school students. When studies indicated significant differences in pupil achievement, the traditional classroom was favored. In studies that investigated attitudes, teachers were found to prefer team-teaching. In the junior high setting, it was found that traditionally taught pupils performed significantly better than team-taught pupils in one study, and no significant differences were found in other studies. It was discovered that students preferred the traditional classroom, although evidence also suggested that team-teaching improved the self-concept of some pupils. Only one study involved education beyond the junior high level--in a college algebra course, no significant difference was found between traditional and team teaching. (MM)
