Bottom line…PDS and co-teaching are not “SU things”…they just make sense!
1.Supportive teaching - one teacher is the lead instructor while the other teacher provides support for individual students and observes particular behaviors.
2.Complementary Teaching - when one co-teacher enhances the instruction provided by the other co-teacher.
Strategies: record & edit, demonstrations, simulations, activity/lab set-up & break down, technology assistance, modeling, planted question...
3.Parallel Teaching - when two or more people work with different groups of students in different sections of the classroom.
4.Team teaching - both teachers are actively engaged in instruction and management of the class.
