Sonequa Reeves, M.Ed

Course Description:  Co-teaching has increasingly become more popular as education moves to more collaborative models of instruction. This course will help you to reflect on what you can bring to a co-teaching framework, and to reflect on aspects of co-teaching that are essential for you (and your partner!) to succeed in that environment.  You’ll learn the different co-teaching models, how to co-teach with a specialist, and how to apply specific strategies to foster learning in a collaborative environment.  Appropriate for grade levels K-12.

Learning Outcomes:
