Team teaching and integrated courses are an important part of the NTN design. Co-teaching combines multiple content areas into project-based experiences. In project-based learning, teachers are able to to mirror real-life by eliminating the artificial silos that separate relevant content. As an approach to instructional design and pedagogy, project-based learning (PBL) creates numerous ways to making students more known.

The ebb and flow of a PBL classroom can create conditions where teachers have time and leeway to really listen to each student and learn what makes them tick. Co-teaching allows students to learn deeper learning skills with multiple viewpoints. Real world work rarely takes place in a silo, NTN teachers work together to integrate subjects for a real-world and more authentic deeper learning experience.
