Co-Teach Part 1

co teaching is
Co-teaching is
  • An option for providing special services
  • Implemented by two certificated educators
  • Sharing responsibility for instruction (planning, teaching, assessing)
  • Ensuring ALL students are full class members
  • Focus is access to curriculum

NOT –an extra set of hands

NOT – alternating classroom responsibility

NOT – one person teaching, the other roaming

  • A few studies document moderate effect size for student outcomes
  • Many studies focused on concerns and perception
  • Qualitative studies reveal a preponderance of “one teach-one assist” which is not considered ‘highly recommended’
