Parity. Not Parroting!

Solid co-teaching partnerships don’t rely on the expertise and authority of one teacher while the other teacher simply supports or repeats what is said. In effective partnerships, students benefit from the unique strengths and expertise of both teachers in a classroom characterized by mutual respect, shared authority, and equal responsibility. Do you have this kind of parity in your co-teaching partnership? Can your students see it? This week’s FREE tool is a checklist that will help you find out. The list comes from Marilyn Friends “Co-Teach! Building and Sustaining Effective Classroom Partnerships in Inclusive Schools,” a comprehensive guidebook designed to help general and special educators bring the power of two into the co-taught classroom.
