Help teachers use the power of co-teaching to maximize instructional effectiveness and increase achievement for all students!
Designed around the updated edition of the best-selling book A Guide to Co-Teaching, this comprehensive multimedia presentation offers staff developers all the materials needed to help teachers collaborate effectively in the classroom. This complete resource enables workshop leaders to introduce co-teaching; discuss the planning, implementation, and reflective phases of creating and maintaining a collaborative teaching and learning environment; and answer questions about:
- Best practices for organization and mutual cooperation
- Self-assessments for meeting goals
- Paraprofessionals and administrators as co-teaching partners
- New research on co-teaching.
- Response to Intervention (RTI) in a co-teaching environment
Highlighting the four types of co-teaching models—supportive, parallel, complementary, and team teaching—The Multimedia Kit for A Guide to Co-Teaching includes
- The updated edition of the companion book, A Guide to Co-Teaching, providing the foundational framework for understanding and applying each co-teaching model
- An 84-minute, content-rich VHS video that features Jacqueline S. Thousand and Richard A. Villa discussing the models of co-teaching, plus in-the-classroom footage of elementary, middle, and high school master teachers offering tips and suggestions as they demonstrate research-based co-teaching strategies in linguistically, culturally, and academically diverse settings
- A companion DVD with navigational menus and bullets for easy stop-and-search control of the video content
- A step-by-step facilitator's guide that connects the core content of the book to both the video and DVD and includes video/DVD segment prompts, workshop outlines, extended workshop activities, discussion questions, and major points of emphasis
This complete all-in-one package is an indispensable resource for anyone planning, designing, or conducting training on co-teaching, including staff developers, district and school administrators, and mentor principals.
