Finl Team-Teaching inemsion
At Bethwaie: Evans Sives Bcpsrt
...... ......I. .
By EVAN JAMES EVANS
Prinsipcl, Bethware School
(f:d. Note: Kings Mountain's
first incursion into team teach
ing is being eonduicted this
year at Bethware School.)
One of the newer approaches
to education involves three or
four different things that are
necessary if the program is go
ing to be effective. It also in
volves physical plants and per-'
sonnel that are suitable to it’s
introduction and Implementation.
The physical plant can be oh- ,
tained by altering existing build- j
ings at a .srmall cost simply by
removing some walls bet\\een
classrooms (which -incidentally
helps to remove wvills between
teachers and pupils) and open
ing up the areas for large groups.
The pt'rsonnel problem is some-
thing else again. It roquire^i
teachers w'ho are intere.-^ted in
this approach, who want to work
An it, who are willing to and
