Hello everyone! It is very important to collaborate with all your colleagues that you work with. It is also important to collaborate with the parents of your students. It helps my student’s behavior and participation when parents are aware of what is expected of my students at school. I just read an article that stated collaborative learning needs to be focused on what our students are learning. Thanks, Amy

Hi Amy,

You are correct! You'll find a lot of people on our community discussions who value your thoughts and ideas. Feel free to work with the Community to generate new ideas and share your experience, skills, and thoughts. I see that you teach social studies. We have a group on the subject.

Schmoker's latest book addresses collaboration: Focua: Elevating the Essentials to Radically Improve Student Learning. There is a study guide that goes with this book so that it can be used with school teams.

Hi Theresa and Amy,

You may want to check out: Connecting Teachers, Students, and Standards by Deborah L. Voltz, Michele Jean Sims and Betty Nelson. There is a section on collaboration which I think will be helpful as a resource.
