A Tune-Up for Stymied Teams: When a Group's Focus Falters, Take Steps to Get Back on Track
Hesson, Renee
Journal of Staff Development, v34 n2 p24-26 Apr 2013
Even the most efficient team of teachers can become ineffective. Conversely, even the most ineffective team can be made more efficient and productive. The keys to refocusing a committed team on the instructional goals originally established by the group are through reality, relationships, and reflection. These critical components of effective collaboration guide a renewed commitment to assist students to achieve desired learning outcomes. Using these components, collaborative teams assess current reality, establish committed relationships, and conduct a thorough reflection to promote positive change. These steps can be applied independently or successively as needed to most collaborative team situations and will help establish, enhance, or engage a team in a collaborative culture, inclusive of any professional learning team, any task, and any time of the school year.
