Team teaching - a pedagogical technique that shifts the role of instruction from the individual to a team - provides students with the opportunity to take a more active role in learning. Author Francis J. Buckley explains how and why team teaching works and provides a comprehensive review of research material with practical applications. The book covers the nature, purpose, types, history, and evaluation of team teaching, as well as the resources needed and the roles of teachers, students, and administrators. The author compares this teaching approach with traditional methods seeking to strengthen its appeal to initiates. Team Teaching: What, Why, and How is the fruit of 30 years of team teaching in graduate school, religious education, sociology, psychology, and elementary school.
