What is team teaching?
Team teaching is a strategy used at many grade levels in many schools. Its success depends on how teams are structured and how well each team stays on task. At Azania secondary School, the English and Social Studies teachers comprise a team, and the Mathematics and Science teachers comprise another team. In a concerted effort to tie together content areas and promote across the curriculum learning and activities, team teaching can achieve great success. Team members should have common planning time, work together to develop lessons, and create strategies that benefit their students.
