Advance learning and raise achievement levels by unleashing the power of student teams!

Using the same principles introduced in the best-selling book Teacher Teams That Get Results, this resource shows how students who work together and share ideas with one another can deepen their understanding of essential concepts.

Combining effective grouping strategies with other research-based practices, this resource focuses on the power of student collaboration and dialogue in differentiated classrooms. Students can strengthen critical thinking and achievement through three key skills: teaming to learn, sharing knowledge and skills, and integrating and applying learning. The authors offer more than 100 reproducible planning tools to help learners:

  • Improve critical thinking
  • Scaffold critical layers of meaning
  • Generalize and infer
  • Integrate content
  • Identify patterns
  • Increase adaptive and analytical reasoning

By utilizing these innovative teaching tools and strategies with their student teams, teachers can prepare all students for deeper thinking and success—both in the classroom and on assessments!
