Two or more professionals (Peers with shared teaching responsibility)
Jointly delivering instruction (General education provides the instructional framework, yet the curriculum may be modified for students with disabilities or others who need accommodations)
Diverse group of students (Allows for teachers to respond to the diverse range of needs of their students, lowers student/teacher ratio and expands professional expertise)
Shared classroom space (Co-teachers teach in a single classroom)

Alternative Teaching
+ Helps with attention problem students
+Allows for re-teaching, tutoring, or enrichment
