Shared-Content Teams at UP Academy [Video]

Strategic Teacher Collaboration to Improve Instruction

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. 

ERS is grateful to the National Center for Time and Learning (NCTL) for sharing its video footage of UP Academy Boston, which allowed for the creation of the video above. To learn more about how expanded learning time can be used to support teacher teams, check out NCTL’s publication Time for Teachers: Leveraging Time to Strengthen Instruction and Empower Teachers.
