NCLE: Framework for Building Capacity

NCLE’s framework provides an overview of the types of organizational conditions and practices that enable schools to build and sustain a collaborative culture grounded in evidence of student learning. Related resources include a literature review that summarizes literature on the impact of teacher collaboration on student learning and the specific characteristics that make teams effective; an asset inventory to help groups self-assess teaching and learning impact; and a capacity-building continuum to support collaborative teams.
