The co teaching edge

  1. 1. The Co-Teaching Edge This edge focuses on teachers and their place within the education system in the 21st century in these areas:  ProfessionalDevelopment  Partnering with the community, other educators and parents.
  2. 2. Professional Development School system budgets are being cut from all areas including teaching education, this in conjunction with time constraints, are leaving teachers with a lack in development. Thus teachers must seek out learning opportunities on their own, which typically take place within the summer. Teacher education is also falling short. Major focus on philosophy as opposed to actual teaching methods. Chen states, “You can’t have a world-class education system without a world-class teacher education system” (2010, p. 192).
  3. 3. Community ConnectionExamples  Chen describes the use of community partnerships to teach concepts to students:  Partnership between local schools in Arizona and Opera singers in the program, Opening Minds through Arts.  Flocabulary in New York uses Hip Hop and rap to motivate and teach students.
  4. 4. Home Connection Parent involvement is an essential part of the success of education reform. Technology can serve to breach the expanse between home and school.  School Loop and Teleparent are technology tools that are using the internet, web pages, online calendars and voicemail to involve and inform parents.
