Co-Teaching, Collaborative-Team Teaching, Integrated Co-Teaching, etc., are all different names for the partnership between a general education and a special education teacher in the classroom. This model is prevalent in many school districts. While many teachers support the idea of two teachers in the classroom, over 70% of these teachers also assert their implementation of this model is far from ideal. With the sudden switch to distance learning, and the prospect of distance learning sticking around for quite some time, administrators and teachers alike are concerned about maintaining this model and even wonder if co-teaching will become a thing of the past. This edWebinar explores the efficacy of adapting co-teaching for distance learning while also discussing best practices for strengthening the general/special education teacher partnership. Viewers will gain from this edWebinar tangible strategies to implement in their online classrooms.
This recorded edWebinar will be of interest to preK through high school teachers and school and district leaders.
