“If there is anything that the research community agrees on, it is this: The right kind of continuous, structured teacher collaboration improves the quality of teaching and pays big, often immediate, dividends in student learning and professional morale in virtually any setting.” DeFour
Ensuring That Students Learn It is not the strongest of the species that survive, nor the most intelligent, but the one most responsive to change
Ensuring that all students learn critical corollary questions • What is it we expect them to learn? • How will we know when they have learned it? • How will we respond when they don’t learn? • How will we respond when they already know it?
Group IQ “While a group can be no smarter than the sum total of the knowledge and skills of its members, it can be much “dumber” if its internal workings don’t allow people to share their talents.” Robert Sternberg (1988)
Collaborate What? What do students need to learn and be able to do? How do we know students are learning it? What will we do if the students have not learned it? What will we do if students have learned it? congeniality and focus on building group camaraderie consensus on operational issues discipline, technology, social climate, field trips, attendance, tardies
They quickly learn which teammate has been particularly effective in teaching a certain skill. The others replicate the effective practice!
