Co-teaching is a popular service delivery model for students who are entitled to special education or other specialized services, such as support services for English learners. Evidence shows that the implementation of co-teaching is significantly associated with improved student outcomes. However for co-teaching to be effective, teachers need to thoroughly understand what the arrangement entails and what it takes to make co-teaching work.

In this newly released quick-reference laminated guide, Dr. Marilyn Friend, a renowned authority on co-teaching, provides educators with an overview of the fundamental “what,” “why,” and “how” of co-teaching.

Topics covered include:

  • Co-teaching and inclusion
  • Co-teaching vs. team teaching 
  • Co-teaching vs. paraprofessional Support
  • The role of each co-teacher
  • Elements of successful co-teaching partnerships
  • Instruction in co-taught classrooms/understanding specially designed instruction (SDI)
  • Co-teaching and Common Core Standards (CCSS)
  • Planning for co-teachers

Dr. Friend outlines six the following six co-teaching approaches, along with recommended frequency of use and variations for each:

  1. One Teach, One Observe
  2. Station Teaching
  3. Parallel Teaching
  4. Alternate Teaching
  5. Teaming
  6. One Teach, One Assist
