StateImpact Indiana: Eight Step Process

by Kyle Stokes

April 5, 2012

Job dissatisfaction among teachers has reached an all-time high.  One of the reasons why, according to a national survey:  teachers are increasingly working alone.  More than a third of teachers reported getting less time for collaboration with their colleagues this year.  But some Indiana schools say they’ve found a way to reverse that trend — and in the process, more closely track students’ readiness for high-stakes tests.  The method’s called the “Eight Step Process,” and StateImpact Indiana’s Kyle Stokes went to a school in Anderson to see it in action.
