Term of Art: Team Teaching

“team teaching: An instructional method in which two or more teachers collaboratively teach a group of students. Teaching teams may teach one subject to multiple classes or teach all the core subjects to a single cluster of students for the school year. In the former arrangement, teachers may take turns instructing the entire group or divide the class into smaller sections that rotate between the teachers. In the latter arrangement, teachers meet frequently to plan curriculum and address student strengths and weaknesses.”
