Co-Teach Training

Co-Teach Training is now Collaborative Teaching and Planning

Collaboration between general education and exceptional student education (ESE) teachers is essential for successfully including students with disabilities in general education classrooms. The Collaborative Teaching and Planning training is now taking the place of the previously offered Co-Teach/Team Teach training.  This training is required by the state for both co-teaching and support facilitation (push-in) for core subjects when the ESE teacher is going into the General Education class.  The training is only required one time. 

We have scheduled the following trainings on ProGOE for the 2017-18 school year.

Teachers do not require any type of the Collaborative Teaching and Planning training if SLPs, OTs, PTs or any other therapists are the only ones coming into the classroom for therapy.  

 

Co-Teaching: A classroom in which two teachers, an ESE and a general education teacher, share responsibility for planning, delivering, and evaluating instruction for all students in a class, some of whom are ESE and some of whom are not. In order to be considered co-teaching, this delivery system is provided whenever a class/subject is taught by two teachers and must continue for the entire class period.

 

Support Facilitation:  An ESE teacher provides support for ESE students’ achievement in the general classroom.  Support facilitators may work and move among two or more basic education classrooms working with the general education teachers and students identified with a disability, as needed.  The frequency and intensity of support varies based upon students’ and/or general educators’ need for assistance.

 

Collaborative Teaching and Planning is only required when an ESE teacher is going into a general education classroom and providing services.  In this scenario, both teachers require the training.

 

The two teachers working together should ideally attend the training together.  Substitute reimbursement will be available.

 

If you have any questions, please contact Bill Pearlman, FDLRS Resource Teacher for Inclusion at 633-1000, ext. 560.  Thank you!
