Raise your hand if you’ve ever sat in a grade level team meeting and been frustrated because you’re the only one to share ideas with your team. Raise both hands if these meetings consist of plenty of off topic conversations. One minute the conversation is about math lessons for next week and the next minute the conversation is about the football game this Friday night…or the new movie in the theater…or the latest gossip story about the teacher down the hallway. Can you relate? Well, there’s good news. Collaborating with your team doesn’t have to come with a feeling of frustration as if you are losing your mind. With the right structure and consistency, your grade level team meetings can run smoothly and efficiently.
