Essentially the model provides opportunities for teams of teachers to work together within and between their main areas of responsibility. For example a grade-level educator would work with the grade level team including specialists and special educators, and also work with a cross-school curriculum-targeted teams.
I drew the model below to demonstrate how this might work. I believe this is important because like a series of interlocking gears, this kind of model creates a flow of information share and curriculum development that's inclusive, transparent, team building, and forward moving.
Essential to this process is that teams use effective process to share ideas and develop curriculum. The processes need to be authentic and not just created to fill a dictate, but to truly replicate the strength of living systems' collaborative work--the kind of work that empowers team members to speak up, work together, create, and collaborate to maximize the collective genius of an organization.
