Customized to build upon previous training, this strategy-packed seminar will provide general education teachers, special educators and other specialists involved with collaboration in the general classroom with practical, easy-to-integrate, proven techniques for making a co-taught inclusive classroom more successful. A multitude of ideas will be presented to help all students be more productive and successful in the content areas.
Participants will discover realistic options for taking co-teaching up a level through data-driven grouping strategies, station teaching and efficient time management. Strategies are specifically targeted to general education teachers as well as special education needs, gifted learners and English language learners.
The seminar’s focus will be on maximizing the skills of each co-teacher or specialist, managing time and chunking lesson plans® to increase targeted instructional time through tried and true, best practice co-teaching techniques. Teachers often say, “Show me what it looks like!” This session includes multiple, concrete examples of co-teaching approaches in action and includes un-rehearsed video examples of co-teaching in real classrooms in each of the core content areas. We will:
- Discover a lesson-planning approach that maximizes instructional time, creates options for multilevel instruction, incorporates standards, and utilizes the skills of all adults in the classroom
- Explore realistic options for general and special education teachers to work together successfully to maximize student learning through data-driven grouping strategies, differentiated instruction and efficient time management
