    28. The Collaboration Continuum: Building Interdependence Through Partnership Collaboration has the highest impact on student achievement. Collaboration is “2 (or more) equal partners who create a project or unit of study based on content standards in one or more content areas, a unit that will be team-designed, team-taught, and team-evaluated.” Research from Todd, Ross: Interdependence Cooperation Coordination Collaboration <ul><li>Finding a website or a book for a teacher upon request. </li></ul><ul><li>Showing a teacher how to use a digital camera or book a laptop cart upon request. </li></ul><ul><li>Introducing the document cameras to a team when asked. </li></ul><ul><li>Setting up a learning space with appropriate resources to “kick off” a unit. </li></ul><ul><li>Teaching a “one-off” lesson that fits with the curriculum. </li></ul><ul><li>Planning a unit to coincide with core curriculum which is independently taught by specialist. </li></ul><ul><li>Sharing goals </li></ul><ul><li>Carefully defined roles in the process </li></ul><ul><li>Comprehensive co-planning </li></ul><ul><li>Co-planning units that will be team taught. </li></ul><ul><li>Team-teaching units which authentically embed both curricular goals. </li></ul><ul><li>Units which are team-taught are co-assessed. </li></ul>Isolation Helping when a question is asked Planning when a lesson or an activity happens which supports core curriculum “ a prolonged and interdependent relationship”

    33. Frequent & consistent collaborative planning, learning and assessment: Classroom teacher and technology facilitator work as full partners in the planning, learning (teaming in the classroom) and assessment process. Regular collaborative planning, learning and assessment: Classroom teacher asks technology facilitator for assistance in planning, learning (teaming in the classroom) and assessment as needed. Occasional collaborative planning, learning and assessment: Classroom teacher works with technology facilitator outside of class time to plan and implement projects. Occasional teaming in the classroom, as needed. Occasional conversations: Technology facilitator offers helpful advice and tips to classroom teacher as s/he tackles new projects at their own pace. Classroom teacher actively assists other team members in use of technology. The Collaboration Cycle: Building Independence Through Partnership Pre-assessment of skills, readiness & interest Post-assessment, graduated expert, teacher mentor Consistent Professional Development Opportunities : after school walk-in sessions 3 days per week, curriculum planning at the team level, individual assistance as needed, advice and tips offered to teachers and teams as appropriate to curricular needs.
