Co-Teaching as a Service Model for Students with Mild/Moderate Support Needs

The questions of where students with disabilities should be taught has been debated for decades. Due to limited research with mixed results, there is no clear answer. However, there are indications that both general and special education students benefit from a co-taught learning environment. Having a general education and special education teacher work together allows all students to reap the benefits of having an expert in the content and an expert in accommodations and supports. This project explores the research around co-teaching and what is needed to enter into a co-teaching environment. As a result, an informative co-teaching website was created for all educators and administrators and includes useful visuals, videos and resources.
