In 2006 three middle school teachers from Louisiana became the first team to win the national "Teacher of the Year" prize at the annual Disney Teacher Awards. Now, through their new book, Monique Wild, Amanda Mayeaux, and Kathryn Edmonds are ready to share their successful approach with others.

TeamWork: Setting the Standard for Collaborative Teaching, Grades 5–9 is full of captivating stories and insightful conversations. "The teamers" provide an honest and richly detailed explanation of collaborative teaching in action. They deliver the straight scoop on teaming, offering insights on these and other key topics:

  • how to shape a shared purpose for learning by mining the talents of students and colleagues;
  • how to build strong partnerships with parents, principals, and other key people who influence the lives of young adolescents;
  • how to deepen curriculum integration by "cutting the fluff."

This insider's guide to teaming reveals the conversations, the conflicts, and the collegial sharing that enables teachers to collaborate so that every member of the team can meet the highest standards of professional practice. For new teachers and seasoned veterans alike, TeamWork provides a powerful foundation for achievement.
