What is Team Teaching? Team teaching involves a group of instructors working purposefully, regularly, and cooperatively to help a group of students of any age learn. Teachers together set goals for a course, design a syllabus, prepare individual lesson plans, teach students, and evaluate the results. They share insights, argue with one another, and perhaps even challenge students to decide which approach is better.

EMS = High Growth Instruction Explicit Multi- Sensory Systematic
Test Your EMS Skills: The following are scenarios to test your EMS skills. Take a moment to talk with the members of your table about the best way(s) to deal with these emergency situations.
Scenario I Johnnies current achievement is estimated at level 1 with an 8.0 % Level III Achievement Probability. He has low reading and math skills. Johnnie is a very quiet student and often gets looked over by teachers. Describe strategies used to help Johnnie.
Scenario II Sarah scored above 85% on the first two tests. She seems disinterested in class and says that the class is boring. She is a high achieving student whos predicted level is Level IV on your subject area test. Discuss strategies to keep Sarah engaged.
Scenario III Mrs. Linda Lecture is a veteran teacher with perfect classroom management. Students are always in their seats with desks kept in their neat rows. During a recent district subject area benchmark, 52% of Mrs. Lectures students met standards. Discuss some high-yield instructional strategies that could be used to increase student proficiency to 85 %.
Scenario IV Your class just took a unit assessment and 40% of the students mastered unit goals. What are some strategies that you could put in place for the 60% who did not master the unit? What are some artifacts that you could collect to ensure mastery?
Scenario V Discuss various ways you could assess the knowledge of your students to ensure that they have met the mastery goal.
Thank you for your attention and willingness to hear our story. We are a work in progress, but our determination and tenacity for excellence will keep us working towards 100% in every subject area. Questions? Concerns? Aha Moments?
