The Development of Effective Teaming Practices To Meet the Needs of Seventh Graders.
Deason, Juanita C.
Outcomes of a teacher-teaming program that was implemented among seventh-grade teachers at a Florida middle school are described in this practicum report. Training sessions on effective teaming practices were initiated to address the lack of effective teaming practices among the seventh-grade teachers. Eight seventh-grade teachers participated in a 12-week workshop program designed to increase their awareness of students' affective needs. Teachers completed pre- and post-test surveys of teaming effectiveness. After completing the workshop, teachers reported more positive attitudes toward teaming and used teaming practices more frequently. The teacher teams implemented several new programs designed to increase student self-esteem, which contributed to a significant drop in the number of student discipline referrals. Appendices contain student award certificates, team goals, survey data, and a critical thinking checklist. (Contains 11 references.) (LMI)
