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.
