Strategies for Co-Teaching
This presentation will provide the participants with eleven co-teaching strategies. Teams will learn best practices for implementing co-teaching and view videos of co-teaching in practice.
The presentation for the Early Childhood Co -Teaching professional development is designed to teach best practices and provide strategies for the teaching team and compliment the Classroom Assessment and Scoring System (TM) from Teachstone (TM) as well as the Early Learning Outcomes framework.
The presentation provides data supporting co-teaching with general education and special education teachers to reinforce inclusive practices. This presentation is best when combined with Engage Eleven to enhance co-teaching with engagement strategies. Teams walk away with group engagement strategies to enhance their co-teaching. This is a day long professional learning opportunity. Each attendee should have a copy of both Engage 11 and Engage Co-Teach.
