YES! I've thought about that a lot this year. We decided to do a 4 teacher team for 5th and 6th grade to transition them into high school with 7 periods.So they have 4 teachers per day which means they change classes 4 times.It has definitely been an adjustment, and I'm not sure if we will reach our goal. I mean the kids who were not organized at the beginning of school are STILL not organized. So in essence we haven't "taught" them anything on that scale. Sigh.Sometimes I think about how I would be overwhelmed with 4 different teachers and 4 different sets of expectations. PLUS all of the learning that is supposed to be taking place. PLUS homework from 2 of the 4 teachers. PLUS weekly tests from 3 of the 4.How could they NOT be overwhelmed?Thanks for letting me go on and on and on.... :)Shannonhttp://www.irunreadteach.wordpress.com
