SUMMARYCo-teaching is a powerful instruction practice for teachers - particularly when there is a content area teacher and learning support teacher working together. The impact on students and their learning is immediate. Learning to use the different co-teaching models with intentionality is the focus and participants will walk away with multiple strategies and techniques for implementing this practice in their own schools.
KEY AUDIENCE: PK-12 teachers, teacher teams, ELL/learning support teachers/coordinators, administrators.
Co-Teaching as an instructional practice can be intimidating. The aim of this institute is to empower teachers and leaders to understand the model that emphasizes collaboration and communication among all members of a team to meet the needs of all students.
Participants can expect to:
- Develop a clear understanding of what co-teaching is and what it isn’t
- Understand the various models of co-teaching
- Understand the keys and barriers to effective co-teaching
- Plan for potential implementation of co-teaching
