The purpose of this booklet is to provide strategies to help general and special education teachers, speech and language pathologists, school counselors, para-professionals, and administrators plan for and implement co-teaching during reading instruction in classrooms where a variety of learners are represented, including students with disabilities. The content of the booklet was influenced by current research on co-teaching and inclusion, a year-long sustained conversation with four co-teaching teams, and observations in over 70 co-teaching classrooms. Sections of the booklet address what co-teaching is; what collaboration is; the critical components of reading instruction during co-teaching; critical features of reading instruction during co-teaching; components of co-teaching during reading instruction; top 10 issues and possible solutions for co-teaching during reading instruction; what administrators can do to facilitate co-teaching; and how to get started with co-teaching.
