Teaming incorporates an ever expanding curriculum, without an overlapping of subjects, by a collaboration of teachers and students learning from one discipline to another. Through the teaming approach to teaching, the child gains from the emotional, motivational, and enrichment of interrelationships of different subject teachers. Stimulation for teachers is provided by closer association among colleagues who use varied styles, strategies, and techniques aimed at shared goals and communication. This publication is a guide for team teaching from a program entitled "Nobody Else Outshines Neons" (NEON). The goal of the approach is to share and combine expertise and curriculum objectives to integrate a discipline into interesting and entertaining units, through a mutual set of procedures that are consistent throughout the day, regardless of individual personalities, styles, and disciplines. The publication includes exercises, curriculum suggestions, suggested teaching methods, poems, selections from literature, and other background material on successful team teaching. The "Neon Sam: Student-Parent Assignment Manual" is included. (ND)
