The most important gift teachers and school administrators can give students is to prepare them to be autonomous, fully accountable problem solvers—people who are adept at collaborating with others, who can think critically and creatively, and who are able to manage their projects efficiently with minimal oversight from supervisors. Implementing student teams in the classroom is the single most effective method of developing these skills—but it can also be one of the most challenging.
Student Teaming: You Got This! is a survival guide for teachers ready to take on that challenge. Written by Sara Croll, an educator and literacy coach in Title 1 schools for ten years, this guide is meant to be used as you need it; for quick-and-dirty on-the-spot help with student teaming. Mark it up, fill it with sticky notes, and flip through to the sections relevant to your lesson, your day, or your hour.
Teachers sometimes struggle with releasing ownership of learning to students because oftentimes ownership was never released to them. Through self-reflection questions, specific advice, and practical instruction, this guide gives every educator—those new to teaming, the familiar practitioners, and everyone in-between—the confidence to say I got this!

"Many books are lengthy and collect dust on a shelf. This type of book actually seems like a tool that will be used."

"This is real talk for real teacher about real students with real 21st Century needs. The research and work being done in the area of student “teaming” and the shift in classroom routines, environments, and instructional systems is truly unlike anything I have seen before in education. This has been one of the missing puzzle pieces of the 21st Century Classroom."
