The Team Process in the Middle School: A Handbook for Teachers. Second and Enlarged Edition.
Merenbloom, Elliot Y.
Guidelines for implementation of the team process as part of the middle school concept are presented. Topics discussed in the 13 chapters include effective middle school characteristics, student needs, curriculum design and development, team functions and effectiveness, scheduling, teaching strategies, student grouping, leadership, staff development, and team evaluation. Because successful team process implementation depends greatly on teacher motivation and commitment, a staff development program is recommended. (29 references) (LMI)
