A Guide to Team Teaching in Early Childhood Education.
Kostelnik, Marjorie J.
This handbook provides direct, detailed instructions for involving a variety of adults (teachers, teacher aides, volunteers, and parents) in team teaching young children. The handbook describes specific ways to promote positive relationships among children and among the adult team members, and how to avoid common mistakes when giving feedback. Following a list of the benefits of team teaching and a checklist of items related to the team teaching process, sections of the handbook deal with the following topics: helping children learn, get along with each other, and follow rules; tracking children's needs, interests, and progress; fostering communication and feedback among team members; and involving parents as team members. In each section, specific examples are used to illustrate and emphasize the importance of adults working together to enhance the learning environment for young children. (MM)
