Differentiation of instruction for the diversity of our learners is the reality in today's classrooms and a tough task to take on alone. But co-teaching more than lightens that load. When you and a co-teacher bring together your individual skill sets and strategies, together you create a more enjoyable, creative, and productive teaching experience with more effective outcomes for your students.  Start with this interactive webinar, in which Villa and Thousand compare and contrast the four predominant approaches to co-teaching, provide tools to support co-teachers on their partnership journey, and explore logistical issues such as scheduling.

Presented by Larry Ainsworth, Kara Vandas, & Mary Jane O’Connell

Imagine the possibility of tripling students’ rate of academic growth in the span of just one year. Such a vast leap sounds like a dream, but the research tells us that accelerating learning in this dramatic way is not just a far-reaching hope; in fact, it’s doable for every teacher, in every classroom. Providing students with a deep understanding of specific learning intentions and success criteria brings a type of clarity that results in just that kind of exponential acceleration.  This webinar will introduce participants to practical methods that can significantly accelerate learning for all students by ensuring both teachers, and their students, are absolutely clear about what students need to learn, why they are learning it, and how.
