The Co-Taught Classroom: 5 Ways to Create an Amazing, Nearly Miraculous & Earth-Shattering Partnership

Let’s talk co-teaching! Participants in this workshop will become familiar with the critical elements of an effective collaborative team and discuss how to co-teach in both face-to-face and virtual classrooms. This session is intended to prompt discussion and encourage partners to talk and think about teaching roles and collaborative behaviors. Dr. Kluth will discuss co-teaching structures (e.g., duet teaching, station teaching, parallel teaching) and explore ways educators can work together in shared classrooms. She will also share ideas for developing a vision, setting team goals, and celebrating successes. This session features some cheering, a little drawing, and even a disc jockey---so it is not to be missed!
