Integrated Co-Teaching Classes

Integrated co-teaching services means the provision of specially designed instruction and academic instruction provided to a group of students with disabilities and non-disabled students. It is a means through which students with IEPs receive some or all of their specialized instruction and related services in the context of the general education classroom.

In this model, two professionals with teaching certification are co-teachers, one who is a general education teacher and one who is a special education teacher. Both professionals participate fully, although differently, in the instructional process. General educators maintain primary responsibility for the content of the learning instruction; special educators hold primary responsibility for facilitating the learning process. Co-teaching is one mechanism for facilitating effective inclusion.
