Teaching teams are central to any school’s strategic design. Collaboration across teachers is an essential part of implementing a wide range of building blocks that span multiple power strategies. With this in mind, it’s important to define your school’s teaming strategy before exploring other power strategies and the building blocks that support them. See how shared-content teaching teams at UP Academy Boston collaborate on common lessons and assessments to improve instruction and student outcomes.
