The Perceived Effectiveness of Simultaneous Team-Teaching in a Dual Language Programme
Pardy, Donna
Journal of Research in International Education, v3 n2 p207-224 2004
Many international schools include a host country programme as part of their curriculum. Such programmes range from the study of local culture through to local language instruction. The administration and teachers of an international school (ISXX) felt they wanted to move beyond the traditional approaches to host country integration as well as dedicate more time to the units of inquiry (Primary Years Programme). In order to facilitate this, it was decided that the enquiry-based curriculum would be taught through both English and the host country language of German. This in itself did not appear to be entirely unique, however ISXX further decided that the German teachers and English-speaking class teachers would simultaneously team-teach the units. This study reveals how the children, parents and teachers felt about the first year of the programme. (Contains 2 tables.)
