Co-teaching has become a relatively common service delivery option for students with disabilities, but the results are sometimes disappointing. Professionals often explain that they are doing everything recommended, but students still are not learning as expected. Several reasons may account for this situation, and this webinar will explore those likely to be key causes, along with suggestions for changing practices to change results.
After this webinar, you will be able to:
- Make decisions about which students with disabilities to assign to co-taught classes, how much co-teaching they should receive, and what other services they may need.
- Understand how special and general educators perceive their co-teaching roles and responsibilities? and what special educators should do in co-taught classrooms to go beyond simple content support.
- Incorporate specially designed instruction into co-taught classes without causing issues related to general curriculum pacing.
- Address logistical problems that affect co-teaching quality (e.g., class composition, scheduling, planning time).
