Thank you, Claire, for everything you do representing 2Teach in the field!
Baltimore County Public Schools filmed this video after a number of years of district-wide co-teaching implementation and as a direct result of their partnership with Dr. Murawski and 2Teach. It shows real teachers implementing co-teaching models in elementary, middle, and high schools.
Student, staff, and administrator testimony illustrate co-teaching's impact on student learning.
2Teach is an educational consulting company dedicated to providing practical, innovative and research-based strategies to improve instruction in today's inclusive classrooms and organizations. Today's schools are recognizing that different strategies are needed to address the current diversity that exists in classrooms. Professional development is a critical component to ensuring that teachers, staff and administrators are prepared for these challenges and have the right attitude, knowledge, and skills.
Co-teaching requires two or more professional educators to
“co-plan, co-instruct, and co-assess” (Murawski, 2003, p.10)
One of the ways schools address the demands of students with and without special needs in the general education classroom is through co-teaching. Co-teaching involves having a general education teacher and special service provider (e.g., special education teacher, Title I teacher, ELL specialist, speech/language pathologist) sharing in the planning, instruction, and assessment to ensure student success. 2Teach's CEO is Dr. Wendy Murawski, one of the nation's foremost experts and authors on co-teaching.
