Co-teaching is becoming more and more popular in schools as an option for educating students with disabilities. Most professionals have questions about these teacher partnerships. Have you ever wondered 

  • What exactly is co-teaching? 
  • What the role of the paraprofessional is in a co-taught class?
  • Why co-teaching is receiving so much attention in today’s schools?
  • What co-teaching looks like in practice?
  • How to address classroom matters such as the professional relationship, classroom management and student behavior, and differentiated instruction?
  • How professionals are addressing time for shared planning and scheduling?
  • How to develop and evaluate a co-teaching program? 

For the past several years, people have asked where practical information about co-teaching--from setting up and maintaining successful programs to establishing positive relationship in the classroom to resolving interpersonal and logistics difficulties—can be found. Co-Teach! A Manual for Creating and Sustaining Effective Classroom Partnerships in Inclusive Schools is designed to address your questions about co-teaching, whether you are just anticipating co-teaching, are a novice co-teacher, or are a veteran co-teacher.
