Rimpola, Raquel C.
Online Submission, Paper presented at the Annual Meeting of the Georgia Educational Research Association (36th, Savannah, GA, Oct 21-22, 2011)
High school mathematics inclusion classes help provide all students the access to rigorous curriculum. This study provides information about the teacher efficacy of high school mathematics co-teachers. It considers the influence of the amount of collaborative planning time on the efficacy of co-teachers. A quantitative research design was used, with follow up interviews for further explanation of the findings. The findings indicate a significant difference in the mathematics teaching efficacy between the mathematics and special education co-teachers. It also shows the lack of significant differences in efficacy when various collaborative planning times were considered. This examination points to several benefits, such as teacher support structures and adaptive shifts in instructional practices. Implications for future studies and school practice were presented, while considering the efficacy of co-teachers in inclusive contexts. (Contains 5 tables.)
