With so many schools taking a serious look at teaming procedures, our educational system is becoming more open to new innovative programs, cooperative planning, and a variety of staff utilization possibilities. A first year teacher or teacher new to team teaching may find such a program too challenging unless a situation is provided to orient the prospective teacher into an open-concept, nongraded, or flexible building where team teaching is taking place.

This project was undertaken because beginning teachers usually do not receive sufficient indepth training for working in team teaching situations. It is the intent of the writer to:

(a) identify those districts in the state of Washington utilizing team teaching at either the elementary and secondary levels.

(b) to visit several of the above programs for the purpose of asserting whether or not these schools would permit Central Washington State College students to observe their program.

Additionally the project is important in that it will provide an opportunity for the writer to increase his own understanding of team teaching, and to become aware of other innovative programs being used in schools visited.
