A move toward collaborative teaching at Monroe High School in Michigan is being credited with the school meeting adequate yearly progress benchmarks for the first time in five years. The team-teaching approach used at the school typically features a lead teacher and a special-education teacher and prevents students from being pulled out of the classroom for special education. "I think it's great for all kids," said one special-education teacher. "Everybody benefits. They all draw on each other's strengths."
