ABSTRACT
The article provides information on how to create collaborative work environments that result in improved student learning in the U.S. The author presented three aspects necessary for small-group collaboration in schools: (1) administrator clarity about the intention of working collaboratively, (2) an understanding of group members' roles and responsibilities, and (3) the role of the term citizen facilitator. The school leadership established structures, roles, times for the group to collaborate, and a menu of tasks on which to work.
