High-Performing Teams is a complete activity notebook designed to help new and newly formed teams develop a shared vision; set high-performance goals; establish norms; create an action plan and develop common expectations for students. Based on the Middle Start Reform Model, High-Performing Teams provides step-by-step professional development activities to help teams coordinate curriculum, instruction, and assessment; promote the intellectual, social, emotional and physical needs of students, engage in decision-making regarding policies and practices; cultivate communication with families and communities; and flexibly group students to ensure access to rigorous curriculum for all.

High-Performing Teams also comes with a School Kit which includes four videotapes to facilitate learning of various strategies and processes to improve student learning and help teachers collaboratively plan and reflect. The School Kit also includes a CD with templates of forms to help teams organize and record actions and decisions.
