Written by experts in the field, this third edition of the best-selling. "A Guide to Co-Teaching" highlights the benefits and challenges of co-teaching, addressing the No Child Left Behind requirement that all students have access to highly qualified teachers and the IDEA requirement that students with disabilities have access to the general education curriculum. Practitioners embarking on a collaborative teaching approach will find information on four types of co-teaching models (supportive, parallel, complementary, and team teaching), updated references throughout the text, expanded coverage of RTI, and a discussion of the role of paraprofessionals and administrators as partners in co-teaching. This unique road map leads teachers through the planning, implementation, and reflection phases with the help of these practical features: quotes and advice about successes and failures from teachers and students; self-assessments to ensure that goals are met; answers to frequently asked questions; tips for organization and mutual cooperation; a glossary of terms. A "Guide to Co-Teaching" enables teachers to build successful, enjoyable co-teaching relationships and create more effective outcomes for their students. New to this edition: new information on co-teaching for ELLs; integrated information about RTI and the Common Core State Standards; updated research; new case studies and vignettes.
