Special & general Educators
Collaboration is key for effective learning environment

Both teachers enhance independence
General educator should be "prepped" on the child's specific need
Be willing participants and look for the positive
Collaboration "is a style for direct interaction between at least two coequal parties voluntarily engaged in shared decision making as they work toward a common goal" (Friend, 2007, p. 7).
"We collaborated to develop a lesson plan in math to meet the needs of all our students."
"I teach a ‘collab' class."
Comment: Collaboration is not a service delivery option; it is a style of interaction (Friend & Cook, 2007).
Inclusion is a belief system "in which everyone belongs, is accepted, supports, and is supported by his or her peers and other members of the school community in the course of having his or her educational needs met" (Stainback & Stainback, 1990, p. 3).
"We believe all our students should have opportunities to participate in all aspects of school life."
"We believe our students with disabilities can be included in the general education classes when they can handle the content and behave appropriately."
Comment: "Students should never have to earn their way into a general education environment" (Schwarz, 2007, p. 40).
Co-teaching is two or more educators who jointly deliver substantive instruction to a diverse group of students in a single space (Friend & Pope, 2005).
"The general educator and I share the responsibility of planning, preparing materials, and delivering the content to our 5th-period English class."
"My co-teacher and I don't have the time to plan together so I work with the students with disabilities in a small group in the back of the class."
Comment: There is more to co-teaching than placing two teachers in the same classroom space at the same time.
