The purpose of this literature review on collective teacher efficacy and collaborative working environment strategies completed in schools settings from Pre-K-university level, was to help guide teachers and school leaders to examine their faculty’s level of self-efficacy, and to propose actionable steps on how to promote levels of self-efficacy. This literature review addresses teacher self-efficacy at three different levels: school leadership, longevity and job satisfaction, and student achievement. Secondly, it addresses two distinct teacher collaboration methods to consider in their professional development and/or content delivery structure: team teaching and micro-teaching. These two methods are examined and discussed in ways they may have major impacts on teacher self-efficacy and student achievement.
