Teaching Well: A Team Approach

Our grade-level uses a team approach to teach our 75 fifth grade students.

There are so many benefits to this approach.

Most of all, together we do better.

With the team approach, one teacher does not feel like he or she has to be all things, but instead we can shore up each others' challenges, and share our strengths. Plus it's not lonely and much more efficient and targeted when it comes to good teaching.

I plan to write more about this in the days ahead, but for now, let me say that I advocate for grade-level teams rather than one-teacher-one-classroom as it's much more effective and positive when it comes to moving our learning/teaching efforts forward. Do you agree?
