Administrators as Advocates for Teacher Collaboration
Ketterlin-Geller, Leanne R.; Baumer, Patricia; Lichon, Kathryn
Intervention in School and Clinic, v51 n1 p51-57 Sep 2015
This column contends that administrators are responsible for constructing a culture of collaboration in their schools and that ultimately, the facilitation of collaboration affects students' academic achievement. Within the context of a leadership scenario, this article outlines the need for, function of, and logistical implementation of collaboration. Administrators can help teachers' collaborative instructional design and delivery efforts by focusing on collective expertise development and dissemination, implementation strategies, and the development of assessment expertise. Four tools are included to assist in guiding and sustaining collaboration to support the academic success of students with disabilities.
