Abstract

Van Allen (1996) supports a paradigm shift in how Americans think about education, from a view of school as hierarchy to school as continuum. While the relationship between elementary and secondary education is not always visible, teachers can model cooperative learning for students by working as a team across grade levels to solve problems, complete tasks, and accomplish common goals, such as reducing gaps and redundancies in education. Schools could respond more productively to elementary and secondary students and teachers if they provided cooperative learning opportunities for teachers where they could exchange information, schedule meetings, share experiences and joint work, and provide teacher education and training at preservice and inservice levels. If administrators would provide regular, scheduled, joint meetings across grade levels, they would support teacher autonomy and teacher professionalism. Such opportunities would allow teachers to practice what they preach. [ABSTRACT FROM AUTHOR]
