Collaborative teaching – reflections on team teaching… so far.

This year Jo Russell and I have been teaching 70 twilight students their GCSE RS after school. We did not anticipate the large numbers and as a result we went from our original plan of teaching two separate classes to merging the two and team teaching. This was a new venture for us and so I did a bit of research into what strategies we could use.
