Abstract

This paper reports the advantages and disadvantages of team teaching in a PT3 grant at University of Houston during its three year history. Team teaching in a technology class enables instructors to meet the needs of students with different level of technology skills. One student observed, "It's like special education inclusion classes I've observed. Students on different levels get help so they can keep up with the activities." Team teaching in this PT3 grant involves technology fellows and professors sharing responsibility for planning and implementing instruction, and grading and assisting students during class and open lab hours. Here, too, teachers with different abilities and experience work together to create a dynamic curriculum. The collaborative nature of this team teaching project may encourage preservice teachers' participation in a similar model as they move into their own classrooms.
