Teachers cannot achieve deeper learning in isolation, education consultant Ben Johnson writes. Instead, he suggests in this blog post that educators form cross-curricular teaching teams, in which teachers from different departments come together to collaborate and share information. Once this is accomplished, he writes, teachers can work together to "provide a rich, rigorous, and relevant flow of knowledge and skills, and then find a way to lead the students to this water and then make them thirsty enough to drink deeply."
