Planning and Administering a Collaborative Teaching Program (PACT).
Parker, Fred R.; Lumpkins, Bob
The major underlying concepts used in developing this Collaborative Teaching Program for intermediate grade level students included the heterogeneous grouping of pupils in a community of learners, the use of quality circle management, and the appropriate use of teaching strategies geared toward the major modes of learning. The community of learners concept developed for the project involved three communities of approximately 120 pupils. The average age range in each community is approximately 3 years. Four regular teachers in each community, plus a full complement of special teachers, working together as an interdisciplinary team, plan and provide instruction to meet the learning needs of the students in their respective communities. This paper describes the types of instruction used in the program and how the concept of quality circle management contributes to the effectiveness of the program. (JD)
