  2. 2. What is Co-Teaching <ul><li>Two or more people sharing responsibility for teaching some or all of the students assigned to a classroom. </li></ul><ul><li>It involves the distribution of responsibility among people for planning, instruction, and evaluation for a classroom of students. </li></ul>
  3. 3. What Co-teaching is not. <ul><li>It is not one person teaching one subject followed by another who teaches a different subject. </li></ul><ul><li>It is not one person teaching one subject while another person prepares instructional materials at the Xerox machine or corrects papers in the teacher’s lounge. </li></ul><ul><li>It is not occurring when one teacher conducts a lesson and others stand or sit by and watch. </li></ul><ul><li>It is not happening when the ideas of one person prevail for what is to be taught or how it will be taught. </li></ul><ul><li>Finally, co-teaching is not simply the assignment of someone to act as a tutor. </li></ul>
  4. 4. The Elements of Co-Teaching <ul><li>Two or more people who coordinate their work to achieve at least one common, publicly agreed on goal. </li></ul><ul><li>Two or more people who share a belief system that each of the co-teaching members has unique and needed expertise. </li></ul>
  5. 5. <ul><li>Demonstrate parity by alternatively engaging in the dual roles of teacher and learner, expert and novice, giver and recipient of knowledge or skills. </li></ul><ul><li>Use a distributed functions theory of leadership in which the task and relationship functions of the traditional lone teacher are distributed among all co-teaching group members. </li></ul>
  6. 6. <ul><li>Use a cooperative process that includes face-to-face interaction, positive interdependence, performance, as well as monitoring and processing of interpersonal skills, and individual accountability. </li></ul>

  9. 9. Supportive Teaching <ul><li>When one teacher takes the lead instructional role and the other(s) rotates among the students to provide support. </li></ul><ul><li>The co-teacher taking the supportive role watches or listens while students work, stepping in to provide one-to-one tutorial assistance when necessary. </li></ul>
  10. 10. Parallel Teaching <ul><li>When two or more people work with different groups of students in different sections of the classroom. </li></ul><ul><li>Co-teachers may rotate among the groups. </li></ul>
  11. 11. Complementary Teaching <ul><li>When co-teachers do something to enhance the instruction provided by the other co-teachers. </li></ul><ul><li>For example one co-teacher might paraphrase the others statement or model note-taking skills on a transparency. </li></ul>
