Engage Co- Teach

Co-Teaching is defined as two certified teachers working together with shared responsibilities in a classroom with groups of students. This teaching tool offers eleven effective, results-based best practices for co-teachers to succeed, both with each other and their students!

 

This easy-to-use, nicely laminated classroom resource provides a framework of co-teaching strategies organized into three categories – supportive, team and advanced. Developed by Dr. Belinda Karge, these strategies will help guide your co-teaching efforts with insights developed from over twenty years of educational research and multiple co-teaching engagements.

Differentiation and how to engage students in diverse classroom groupings is a constant challenge for educators. The 21st century educator becomes the facilitator of learning, not the guardian of knowledge. The Common Core is about identifying the skills, knowledge, and habits of the mind that all learners need to be successful in society.

THINKING THAT MATTERS FOR SCHOOLS SCHOOL FUNCTION AREAS (SFAs) FROM CHALLENGE TO CHANGE is a product of the non-profit LEEG Initiative of the Leadership and Education Effectiveness Group (The LEEG). Vision for this work stems from two years of convening education professionals and stakeholders representing diverse districts, schools, multiple states, and education organizations. A task for the various constituents was to examine factors of school underperformance and change needs. We also strategized support opportunities and techniques to assist preschool through grade 12 schools with learner-centered, learner-focused continuous and sustained effectiveness improvement. The LEEG Initiative Engages, Empowers, Equips, and Elevates Educators (E4) to practice learner-focused continuous change and improvement. The goal is to maximize personal and professional potential to lead effective schools by:

  • Elevating school and district leaders to perform as change agents who consistently and competently create and sustain effective teaching and learning for all students.
  • Equipping school and district leaders with the knowledge, skills and dispositions to optimize teaching and learning for all students.
  • Engaging school and district leaders in a process of systemic analysis and action for continuous improvement.
  • Empowering school and district leaders to build a culture of collaboration, strong collegiality, high expectations for all involved, and equity-centered values and beliefs.
