Collaborative teaming is the glue that holds an inclusive school together, but most teachers don't get the training they need to put this critical process to work. Schools can fulfill that need with the new edition of this book, an easy-to-use guide to forming effective collaborative teams that help stimulate students' academic progress and social behavior in general education. Educators will learn how to, select team members, facilitate smooth communication during team meetings, define the team's purpose and focus, and schedule and preserve time for teaming. Teachers will also get new and expanded information to help them identify problems, decide on solutions, and create action plans; work cooperatively with family members and paraprofessionals; co-teach with other professionals; and avoid or resolve conflict. Filled with vignettes that show the strategies and suggestions in action, this guidebook will increase teacher motivation, bring about better decisions and outcomes, and facilitate the active involvement and learning of all students.
