The following co-teaching methods are methods that will be implemented in our classroom throughout the year.
Lead and Support Teaching
In this method, one teacher is the lead teacher while the other teacher walks around and offers support to certain individuals.
During station teaching, the students are divided into small groups, and cycle through different stations that are led by each teacher.
When instructing in a parallel teaching method, the class is split in half and both teachers instruct the same lesson at the same time.
While one teacher is instructing the majority of the students, the other teacher uses the time to work with a small group to pre-teach, re-teach, supplement, or enrich instruction.
The teachers work in a coordinated fashion to both instruct the group as a whole.
