If you are quick to criticize others, enjoy knowing that you’re a bit smarter than someone else, or sometimes put others down to make yourself feel better, then you’re not really that interested in teamwork. It’s not the end of the world if you utilize the ol ‘red pen mentality’ and regularly critique others. But it’s not a very helpful thing to do.
Especially in a school.
That’s because most schools are built on teamwork, camraderie, and mutual appreciation. In other words, teachers help other teachers. Students help other students. Students help teachers. Teachers help students. And so forth.
Everyone helps everyone.
That’s the goal, at least, for most modern schools. We’re all in this together and figuring out how to encourage teamwork in school is something every administrator, teacher, and student should know how to do. Lucky for you, the always fabulous Mia MacMeekin built this visual guide that lays out simple (but effective) methods for team building. What works for you?
