Guaranteed Success for the Co-teaching Classroom

Following the success of the first edition, Co-Teaching That Works: Structures and Strategies for Maximizing Student Learning, Second Edition is here to provide actionable advice to co-teachers seeking to utilize one another's strengths. Unlike other co-teaching books, this manual is written for every possible educator combination—not simply general educators. You'll find sections on everything from co-teaching in literacy and speech-language therapy to special education and technology so that, no matter what subject matter or expertise, you'll be prepared to co-teach.

This book is written to provide concrete, actionable advice, including:

  • Co-Teaching Roll Out Plans
  • Leadership Guidelines
  • Relationship Development
  • Best Co-Teaching Models
  • Specially Designed Instruction
  • And more

Educators will have the opportunity to learn from other experienced co-teachers who share their personal stories, tips, and tried-and-true co-teaching techniques that lead to student success. Their creative, time-efficient approaches will revolutionize the way you view your classroom teaching strategies and enhance your ability to collaborate with other educators.

Whether you are planning to build your co-teaching strategy from scratch or just looking to refine your current approach, Co-Teaching That Works will undoubtedly be a priceless resource to have in your professional toolbox.
