What Is Co-Teaching?
Co-Teaching is an instructional delivery approach in which a classroom teacher and a special education teacher (or other special services professional) share responsibility for planning, delivering, and evaluating instruction for a group of students, some of which have exceptional needs.
--Friend, Reising, & Cook, 1993
Our purpose is to educate and support teachers and administrators in the implementation of effective co-teaching.
Successful implementation of the Co-Teaching model requires careful implementation planning and oversight as well as training with follow-up support for the educators involved.
The Arkansas Co-Teaching Project is designed to provide support to schools interested in implementing a new co-teaching program or improving an existing one. Support is provided through comprehensive training, technical assistance, and informational resources.
