Four elementary schools in Sebring, Fla., are adopting a team-teaching model after a pilot last year by two fifth-grade teachers. The model, educators report, allows for a teacher to work one-on-one with struggling students or handle discipline issues while his or her partner continues teaching, and gives both teachers more time for collaborative brainstorming and problem-solving. "I would say we believe the number one benefit of this model is the academic time that we gain," said John Spencer, a fifth-grade team-teacher.
