Critical Incidents in Teacher Collaboration on Interdisciplinary Teams.
Kain, Daniel L.
Research in Middle Level Education Quarterly, v21 n1 p1-29 Fall 1997
Used the critical incident technique to study conditions that encourage or discourage teacher collaboration. Found that time, training, and organizational support were crucial to collaboration. Lack of structured support, pressures to "cover" curriculum and conduct testing, and traditions of tracking and separate-subject instruction discouraged collaboration. Resulting recommendations call for further research and for enhancing teacher collaboration. (Author)
