How often do you meet with your grade level team (or subject area team) to collaborate? Do you do lesson plans together?

We constantly talk to each other about our plans, make copies for one another, email our lesson plans to each other....so we don't have a sit down meeting to collaborate. Our formal grade level meetings are with the principal about twice a month during our planning time, but it has nothing to do with grade level planning - it is more about the school goals.

We meet as a team twice a week in the morning. Since I am an inclusion teacher, I also meet with my collaborative partner an additional morning. My team also has a common prep time, but we rarely meet. We use that time for individual classroom prep.

We are required to meet twice a week. We meet from 800-830 and 340-445 every Wednesday. Last year, we used our Wed afternoons to create UBD's (Understanding by Design) for all our math units. If you haven't heard of it, it's basically an entire unit planned out. It is really awesome to have this year because all our math lessons are already done for the whole year!

This year, we're focusing on Science and Social Studies!

BIG thank you to Jaidynsmum for my beautiful siggy!

I work in a middle school. Our team meets every other day. It seems like all we do is meet with parents. We don't have a lot of time to plan interdisciplinary units, and honestly, with our packed curricula there is not much time for changing/adding new things. I do appreciate our planning time, it is great to check in with the other teachers and come up with strategies that might help kids learn.

Our team meets once a month with our principal and we try to meet weekly to do lesson plans. We talk at lunch nearly every day (although it's not a "formal" meeting, we often get some stuff done).
