Collaboration for Inclusion is a comprehensive video series that includes two DVDs by Richard Villa: Collaborative Planning: Transforming Theory into Practice (Disk 1), and Collaborative Teaching: The Co-Teaching Model (Disk 2). Each video can also be purchased separately by clicking on the individual title, below.

DVD 1 - Collaborative Planning: Transforming Theory into Practice

Richard Villa, nationally renowned lecturer and author of Creating an Inclusive School and Restructuring for Caring and Effective Education, presents a comprehensive overview of collaboration, including its history, the rationale for its use, and the key elements of successful collaboration in schools. Drawing from extensive research and practice, Villa provides critical insight into what collaborative teams can do to optimize functioning and outcomes. Viewers accompany Villa as he visits with teachers who are engaged in transforming the theory of "collaborative planning" into successful instruction in their classrooms. Collaborative teams of teachers are profiled, and educators share how they meet the many challenges and obstacles that needed to be overcome.

This video will leave viewers with a better understanding of the collaborative planning process, the value of collaborative planning, as well as concrete strategies and tips for successful collaborative planning. The video highlights important features of collaoborative planning, including

  • The five essential components to an effective collaborative teaming process
  • Differentiating instruction through collaborative planning
  • Designing collaboration using the “P-I-G-S Face” model
  • Transforming research-based theory into practice
  • Implementing practical strategies that promote collaboration in schools

DVD 2 - Collaborative Teaching: The Co-Teaching Model

This second video in the Collaboration Series provides valuable information in the use of co-teaching as an effective instructional and organizational arrangement. Building on the five essential components of collaborative planning detailed in DVD 1, Villa reviews four basic models of co-teaching:

  • Supportive
  • Complimentary
  • Parallel Split
  • Team Teaching

In addition to observing these models in action in actual classrooms, viewers see Villa assist educators with addressing the most common issues and concerns related to implementing collaborative teaching. Collaborative Teaching provides clear, concise and research-based information that enables educators to meet the challenges that any collaborative process entails.

Topics covered include:

  • Four approaches to successful co-teaching (supportive, complementary, parallel, and team teaching, and how to implement them
  • Strategies to ensure effective co-teaching in inclusive classrooms
  • Ways to overcome obstacles and deterrents to the implementation of co-teaching
  • How to design co-teaching experiences based on the collaborative teaching model
  • How to differentiate instruction through co-teaching
