District Featured in Professional Journal for Work with Collaborative Learning Teams

Adobe ReaderScreenSnapz001The Dallas Center-Grimes (DC-G) district was featured in the April edition of the JSD Learning Forward Journal about their work with collaborative learning teams. The district is finding that collaborative learning teams are improving teacher practice and student learning results.

The article also mentions the partnership between the Iowa Department of Education and Iowa’s Area Education Agencies to pilot the work. To ensure district leaders had the skills to support collaborative learning teams and building leadership teams, Iowa’s AEAs provided professional development on how to structure, manage, and facilitate them. What’s more, a team of Heartland AEA staff attended professional development sessions with DC-G district team members and worked side-by-side with them during the first year of implementation.
