NEW! FEATURED PROGRAM
Collaborative teaching between a classroom teacher and a special education teacher is the foundation of creating a classroom where all students can successfully access the general curriculum. The day will be spent examining the most promising practices of co-teaching and examining one school’s journey toward moving to a co-teaching model. Teachers in this school and field will share their knowledge and experience with participants as they consider a co-teaching model for their classroom, grade, department, or school.
