In Collaborative Planning: Transforming Theory into Practice, Richard Villa, nationally renowned lecturer and author of Creating an Inclusive School and Restructuring for Caring and Effective Education, presents a comprehensive overview of collaboration, including its history, the rationale for its use, and the key elements of successful collaboration in schools.

Drawing from extensive research and practice, Villa provides critical insight into what collaborative teams can do to optimize functioning and outcomes. Viewers accompany Villa as he visits with teachers who are engaged in transforming the theory of "collaborative planning" into successful instruction in their classrooms. Collaborative teams of teachers are profiled, and educators share how they meet the many challenges and obstacles that needed to be overcome.

This video will leave viewers with a better understanding of the collaborative planning process, the value of collaborative planning, as well as concrete strategies and tips for successful collaborative planning. The video highlights important features of collaoborative planning, including

  • The five essential components to an effective collaborative teaming process
  • Differentiating instruction through collaborative planning
  • Designing collaboration using the “P-I-G-S Face” model
  • Transforming research-based theory into practice
  • Implementing practical strategies that promote collaboration in schools
  • Designing inclusive classrooms based on collaborative planning and teaming
Villa builds upon the information and strategies presented in this video in the companion video, Collaborative Teaching: The Co-Teaching Model, which can be purchased individually or as part of the two-disk series, Collaboration for Inclusion. This video is also effective as a stand-alone resource.
