Co-­teaching is the newest initiative to be implemented in school districts. Students with special needs can no longer be simply physically "included" in general education classes. These students need and deserve authentic opportunities to access and participate in the curriculum. To accomplish this goal, co-­teaching has been embraced. Teachers must now "co­-plan, co-­instruct, and co-­assess" This article lists and explains the following practical strategies to make thoughtful implementation of co-­teaching less difficult: (1) Provide professional development on inclusion, collaboration, and co­teaching; (2) Establish scheduling strategies; (3) Partner the right teachers; (4) Supervise and evaluate strategically; and (5) Improve, increase, and institutionalize co­-teaching practices. A teacher then shares his personal experience with co-teaching.
