Teaming for Success!

As inclusion practices reach more and more classrooms, regular education teachers and special education teachers are increasingly sharing space, students and accountability. The classroom---once the realm of just one teacher---has now become the shared domain of two educators, each with unique experience, training and expertise.

What makes for a great team? How can both educators get maximum benefit from their collaboration?

The Fundamentals of Co-Teaching card summarizes the best practices of Co-Teaching, the teaming of a Regular Educator with a Special Educator.
