Teachers in a Texas middle school will continue working in teams to teach core academic subjects -- a practice that helps to build relationships and reduces class sizes. The teachers have the same group of students throughout the day and work together to improve student achievement. "If I'm teaching a lesson on Egypt, then the language arts class can have the students write a paper about Egypt, and the science class can do a lesson on mummification," one teacher said. "The kids start to understand that it's not just about history; the lesson is important in all areas."
