The Academic Evolution of Teaming
Hansen, Spencer D.
Principal Leadership, v9 n7 p32-36 Mar 2009
Developing interdisciplinary teams that function properly should be the goal of every school leader who is interested in promoting middle level reform. To accomplish that goal, individual team members should not be left on their own to sink or swim with the teaming concept, but must be guided through a transformational process that teaches them to work as a team. In this article, the author offers several concepts and strategies that help foster the type of teaming that will improve student achievement and support the type of schools that all school leaders want to lead.
