Coteaching: Two Are Better than One
Little, Mary E.; Dieker, Lisa
Principal Leadership, v9 n8 p42-46 Apr 2009
In classrooms and schools across the United States, educators struggle to meet the requirements of standards-based reform that was enacted by federal legislation. Secondary schools can use coteaching with mixed-ability groups of students to meet increased curriculum demands and provide mandated strategies and accommodations for students with disabilities by combining the individual strengths that content teachers and special education teachers offer. Villa, Thousand, and Nevin (2004) define a coteaching team as a content teacher and a special educator who teach the curriculum to all students. Both educators on the coteaching team are responsible for instructional planning and delivery, student assessment, and classroom management. This article offers snapshots of how coteaching can be tailored to meet the needs of individual schools. (Contains 1 figure.)
