Since 1997, SERC’s Co-Teaching Initiative has experienced significant growth with an increasing number of job-embedded professional learning activities available for educators in CT. By definition, co-teaching is a service delivery model for including students with disabilities in the general education classroom. When implemented with fidelity, this model can also be effective in addressing the challenge of meeting the diverse needs of all students. Co-teaching provides a lower student-teacher ratio, which allows for intensified instruction and optimize student learning.
SERC’s training and technical assistance focus on six different approaches to co-teaching, with discussion and application of the principles, practices and pragmatics of each approach. Other topics, such as scheduling, developing parity, planning and addressing IEP goals and objectives for students with disabilities, are also included depending on the audience and the need.
We welcome the opportunity to host you and your co-teaching colleagues at our statewide workshops, or provide on-site, customized training and/or coaching to staff in your district.
