Effectively co-taught classrooms are places of dynamic learning in which students’ needs and engagement are prioritized in a uniquely inclusive environment. However, there is no clear roadmap to developing a co-teaching practice in which both teachers and students thrive in robust partnerships. This workshop will explore the essentials of organizing and collaborating to build a co-teaching partnership that centers the strengths of each teaching partner to best meet the unique needs of the students in their classrooms.
Practitioners in both Special Education and ENL co-taught classrooms are encouraged to attend together to develop their collective capacity and explore strategies to improve collaborative planning and instruction to best serve students.
