Transcript of Copy of Copy of Collaborative and Co-Teaching

Involves other related service professionals to give insight for planning and implementation of a curriculum.
Collaboration is an exchange of information between professionals, and it is common knowledge that good information is crucial in planning a program for a child with special needs.
Co-teaching is the carrying out of a curriculum—the activity involved, but for all students in the classroom, not just the child with special needs. Requires "collaborative effort of two equally-licensed professionals"--usually a general education teacher
and a special education teacher.
The team teaches in the general education setting,
teaching the general education curriculum.
Both teachers instruct, plan, assess, and manage behaviors within the classroom for ALL students, however typically the general education teacher is responsible for content and the special education teacher is responsible for instructional strategies.
Co-teachers should have effective communication skills, flexibility, trust, and shared planning. Both require planning!
Collaborative and Co-Teachers must meet prior to instruction
to discuss the methods they intend to use to best suit
the needs of their student(s). Typically, a team includes a general education teacher and a special education teacher, and possibly other related professionals.
Whether and how often the student with special needs participates in the general curriculum depends on his/her IEP.
For effective collaboration there needs to be trust, cooperation, and respect for shared decision making. Involves team of individuals who work together to achieve an agreed upon goal. Exploring and Comparing Collaborative and Co-Teaching Methods By:

Example of Similarities Differences Between Co-Teaching and Collaboration Example of Differences While we found examples showing the effectiveness of both teaching methods, Collaboration is a part of the foundation of Co-Teaching and needs to be emphasized in any cooperative learning environment. Co-Teaching needs Collaboration to function, while Collaboration does not need Co-Teaching. Collaborative Teaching is
more effective We found that Collaboration... Both are needed! Because... Friend, M. (2009). Co-Teaching: The Basics and Beyond. Retrieved from: www.usviosep.org.

Alternative (GCU Lecture, 2012.) -Both involve two or more
certified teachers.
-Shared responsibility for
classroom instruction.
-Accountability is shared.
-Keep teachers abreast of current trends. (Friend, 2009.) (Ripley, 1997.) Both Collaboration and Co-Teaching are needed in order to service students with special needs because the Individuals With Disabilities Act 2004 mandates that all children must be educated in the Least Restrictive Environment. Collaboration serves tends to serve the individual student with a learning challenge or learning style; Co-Teaching serves the whole classroom with Collaboration built in. Because of IDEA, and the Least Restrictive Classroom concept educators have found that
some of the strategies used
to teach students with
special needs often
times benefit
the whole class. Collaboration can include a consultation, where a Special Education teacher gives a General Education teacher guidance, but doesn't actually help teach in the classroom.

Collaborative Teaching The Five Step Process when working with special needs students:
1. Team reviews the standards that the curriculum
2. They then discuss the specific needs and possible
modifications for the student with special needs,
and set goals or targets for that student.
3. The team explores the best ways to involve and encourage participation from the student in lessons.
4. They monitor the effectiveness of the
collaborative strategy towards reaching their goal.
5. Team evaluates student progress in relation to
the target. (Kids Together, 2010) Prezi Photo Gallery. Chalkboard Graphic. Retrieved from Prezi.com.
