Effects of Cooperative Teaching on Academic Achievement of Regular and Special Education High School Students.
A service delivery model that could unite general and special education is cooperative teaching. Cooperative teaching is an educational approach in which general and special educators work in coactive and coordinated fashion to jointly teach academically and behaviorally heterogeneous groups in educationally integrated settings. There is considerable research evidence which suggests that this kind of approach provides benefits in terms of academic achievement and positive self-concept to both regular and special education students. In addition, benefits can accrue to both the special education and the regular education teacher in the form of improved practice, relief from stressful conditions, and collegial interaction. Twenty references are appended. (IAH)
