expertise,
perceptions, and
ideas

another's
experiences and
perspectives

ideas from other disciplines
3. work together
toward
a common goal
Rethink and consider
alternatives based on
interactions
with other members of

"In a truly collaborative process, individuals do not leave the table to pursue their own goals in isolation from each other. Rather, they share their beliefs and leave with a common goal." p.147
"Participants must believe strongly that 'the whole is greater than the sum of its parts': In other words, they must believe that the process will be of benefit to them." p. 147
"Principles and team leaders can force teachers to have meetings, but they cannot force the spirit of collaboration- this must originate within the group as a shared commitment on the part of each participant." p.148
Teachers already have numerous classroom duties
There are already so many meetings that meet before the meeting to talk about why you met ;)
What else can you think of that would cause negative feelings toward collaboration?
Different ideas are shared
encourages a mutual confidence
encourages trust
What are some more advantages of collaboration?
You can only be responsible for you!
positive attitude
wide repertoire of linguistic and
interpersonal skills so that no
group is singled out
understanding of diversity
without
biased opinions of
differences
openness to listening and acceptingothers' ideas
Collaboration
helps answer the question:

How do we tell the difference between a child in the process of second-language acquisition and a child with a genuine disability?
RTI (Response to Intervention)
depends on collaboration

Does a collaboration meeting look like this at your school?
