Examine culture – Teacher culture 

How would I characterise Teacher culture in my school?

Using the 4 types of culture proposed by Hargreaves (1994), I would say…

Coldingham – has a mix of collaboration and contrived collegiality. There are 2 teachers who willing look for ways to work together BUT they don’t willingly look to include everyone. Which is why there is a need for contrived collegiality to ensure all teachers are involved in the shared working.

Co’path – there is a mixture of individualism and collaboration. Both teachers are very willing to work together but both are also confident in what works for them in their classrooms.
