With the increased demands of the middle school mathematics curriculum, it is imperative that teachers collaborate and work together to grow all learners. The quality of teacher collaboration positively influences teacher performance and student achievement. When teachers engage in high quality collaboration that they perceive as extensive and helpful, there is both an individual and collective benefit. High-quality collaboration in general, and about assessments, is associated with increases in both teacher and student achievement. Building administrators will leave with a greater understanding of what collaborative planning should look like and sound like for middle school mathematics.
