Is it possible to improve teaching and learning without strong teamwork?


Each week this summer I’m introducing a blog theme that connects popular and important posts from recent years. Each theme offers a number of perspectives on a perennial challenge of school leadership.

This week’s topic is “teamwork.”

I firmly convinced that schools cannot be successful in supporting all students to higher levels of success without all teachers and administrators participating in high-functioning teams. Teachers cannot be successful working alone in their classrooms isolated from meaningful and interdependent adult relationships. Readers seem to agree, because my most widely read and tweeted posts are on that subject.

I encourage you to scroll through articles in this thread to find those that match your interests.

In addition, I encourage you to take a closer look at these essays:

“Mindless professional learning produces mindless teaching”

“Effective teamwork requires that leaders do 3 things”

“What’s the rationale for teachers working together?”
