This academy will focus on providing administrators with tools for continually auditing their existing co-teaching programs. Content will include providing participants with the research or models that promote student success in both the academic and social-emotional realms, and how to identify teaching strategies that promote mastery learning and a high level of engagement for all learners. The academy will contain a balance of lessons from the field, as well as a description of how to serve as a coach to provide critical support and feedback to teams. Participants will leave with the knowledge of the various models of co-teaching, how to design strategies for conflict resolution and how to accurately measure specific outcomes for district programs. Enhanced collaboration and parent communication will be discussed and specific examples will be provided to participants. Participants should be ready to discuss any current programs or plans to implement a co-teaching classroom or program.
