Unlocking Expertise among Classroom Teachers through Structured Dialogue: Extending Research on Peer Collaboration.
Pugach, Marleen C.; Johnson, Lawrence J.
Exceptional Children, v62 n2 p101-10 Oct-Nov 1995
Ninety-five teachers participated in a peer collaboration process, involving structured dialogue to promote teachers' use of alternative interventions for students with learning and behavior problems. The intervention group, compared to controls, had reduced referral rates, increased confidence in handling classroom problems, increased positive teacher affect toward the classroom, and more tolerance toward cognitive deficits.
