Co-Teaching(or how to spec ed in someone else’s classroom) Co-Teaching is an educational approach in which two teachers work in a coactive and coordinated fashion to jointly teach academically and behaviorally heterogeneous groups of students in an integrated setting.
Benefits of Co-Teaching Expedites transition into the general education setting Enables teachers to function on a proactive basis Increases job satisfaction Reduces stress and burnout Increases teaching and learning potential Decreases problems with generalization across settings Provides students with more cohesive programs
Benefits of Co-Teaching(contd.) Provides the expertise of two professionals in planning and problem solving Provides students with a model of collaboration Allows students to work with teachers with different styles Allows student assessment to be classroom- based Increases the potential for students who are having difficulty to receive assistance
Co-Teaching Thereare 5 models of what co teaching can look like (6 really) One teach, one support Station teaching Parallel teaching Alternative teaching Team teaching One teach, one come in and modify tests
One Teach, One Support Most Common One lead teacher (usually the core certified teacher) Teaches the class One support teacher (usually the special education teacher) Circulates and gives individual support to all students (special ed and general ed) Little co-planning happens
Station Teaching Teachers divide content Students are distributed evenly (both teachers teach both gen ed and spec ed) Separate but shared responsibilities
Parallel Teaching Both teachers teach the same content (at the same time Each deliver instruction to half the class (heterogeneous make up of students in each half) Joint planning (including accommodations and modifications)
Alternative Teaching One large group, one small group Small group pre-teaches, reinforces or reteaches large group Small group can be made of both spec ed and gen ed students Joint planning
*Team Teaching Shared instruction Coordinated activities in one lesson Mutual trust and commitment Co-planning
