Event Details

Making a Difference Through Co-Teaching 

*This is a two (2) day event - Friday, December 15, 2017 & Thursday, January 18, 2018


Audience: K-Grade 12: Co-teaching teams preferred, consisting of a General Education Teacher and another certified professional, such as a Special Education Teacher, EL/Bilingual Educator, Reading or Math Specialist, or Speech/Language Pathologist

Presenters: Virginia Babcock, SERC Consultant and Clare Wurm, SERC Consultant



   Co-teaching continues to hold great promise for increasing student achievement within the framework of Scientific Research-Based Interventions (SRBI) as a universal practice for supporting students with diverse needs in general education settings. Powerful and dynamic approaches to instruction are made possible as a result of the combined and varied talents, experiences, and expertise of the co-teaching team.

   Co-teaching partnerships consist of a general educator and one other certified education professional, such as a special educator or EL Teacher. These partners collaborate to provide rich and differentiated learning opportunities and a sense of belonging for every student.

   This two-day session explores how co-teaching can effectively meet the needs of students, with and without disabilities, in the general education classroom and reviews the advantages and disadvantages of each of the six co-teaching approaches. Participants will apply their learning between the two days by planning and teaching a co-taught lesson, and then share their experiences with other participants on the second day.

   As a result of this professional learning activity, participants will be able to enhance the quality of their co-teaching partnerships; make decisions about which co-teaching approach will best help to improve student access and outcomes; and collaboratively plan co-taught lessons that maximize instructional intensity and include specially designed instruction. Optional follow-up technical assistance will be offered for those co-teaching teams that would like additional feedback through an on-site observation and/or coaching."
