About this product
- DescriptionPraise for the First Edition: A Guide to Co-Teaching is a must-have text. All members of the school community will find something useful in this book and what they find will guarantee that student learning is improved. --Douglas Fisher, Associate Professor of Teacher Education San Diego State University The book provides a road map for how special and general education teachers can work to effectively meet the needs of students with and without disabilities while working in classrooms that model cooperation and respect. --Mary Falvey, Professor of Special Education California State University, Los AngelesThis second edition of the best-selling A Guide to Co-Teaching: Practical Tips for Facilitating Student Learning highlights the benefits and challenges of co-teaching to address the No Child Left Behind requirement that all students have access to highly qualified teachers, as well as IDEA's requirement that students with disabilities have access to the general education curriculum.Written by experts who practice the co-teaching they advocate, this new edition features new descriptive content of the four approaches to co-teaching (supportive teaching, parallel teaching, complementary teaching, and team teaching) that accurately reflects best practice and current research in teaching and observation. The authors have also updated references throughout the text, expanded the coverage of Response to Intervention, and added a discussion on the role of paraprofessionals in co-teaching. Practitioners embarking on this collaborative teaching approach will find tips on why some co-teaching arrangements work where others fail; straightforward self-assessments to ensure teaching goals are being met; ideas for empowering co-teachers, paraprofessionals, and administrators to thrive as partners; and a discussion of how administrators can support teachers in co-teaching environments.
