Over the past few weeks I have been reflecting on co-teaching strategies; specifically how to most effectively co-teach no matter what the strategy or who the co-teaching team is made up of. Through my research, I have found that there are 5 tenets for effective co-teaching: communication, co-planning, conflict resolution, instructional delivery, and assessment. I hope that these tenets will be helpful for student teachers co-teaching with their mentors as well as current teachers in co-teaching postitions or innovative learning environments. My findings can be viewed by clicking the link below.
