Format: Paperback
For any teachers who want to improve their effectiveness in teams and decrease frustrations when teams don't work, this is a useful resource. The chapters touch on the real issues that affect schools and keep the adults in schools from working effectively together. In other words, all the unmentioned political and interpersonal foolishness that nobody teaches you about in teacher school are laid right out there, along with suggestions on how to deal effectively with problem situations. A real must-read for teachers who value collaboration.
If you want to be a better colleague and develop the skills to deal effectively with other school professionals, this book can help you. If you are a special education teacher frustrated by resistance from general ed teachers, this book can help you. If you want to stop wasting time at team meetings, this book can help you.

This textbook is difficult to read and bores me. They could have said the same things in simpler terms and much quicker. It seems to be very repetitive, but I have already taken a class like this one with a much better text.

The text book Interactions: Collaboration Skills for School Professionals (6th Edition)can best be described as mind-numbing. It is redundant and full of information that anyone in the field should have figured out anyway: Gems of wisdom such as "Delineate a realistic agenda and time frame" for meetings. No, I was planning on being totally unrealistic. Its one value is as a good educational jargon reference. It infuriates me that I spent $93.98 for this book and shipping. I am also pretty ticked about having to take this ridiculous course but at least I have tuition remission.

Are you serious, there is an entire chapter on "How to ask questions" and "What is a paraeducator"

Each chapter could be about five or six sentences long. I wish I was still within my return window, I would send this garbage back. Keeping it great condition so I can sell it back to Amazon.

This book may be useful for 19 year old new college students with no life or work experience, but if you have some time in the real world, this is all VERY common sense stuff.

Interactions: Collaboration Skills for the School Professional that I purchased through Amazon way below bookstore prices is a must-have book for special education teachers. With the expansion of roles of both classroom teachers and special education teachers, there is a need to communicate and work together today that was not necessary in the past. Even seasoned teachers need to find better and more efficient ways to communicate. This book gives information along with concrete examples of not only how to do it, but what to avoid. I'd highly recommend it to all education professinals, including teachers, administration and paraprofessinoals.
