Teaching in Tandem: Effective Co-Teaching in the Inclusive Classroom

by Gloria Lodato Wilson and Joan Blednick

When a special education teacher and a general education teacher share a classroom and teaching responsibilities, every student benefits from intensive instruction, increased learning opportunities, and a reduced student-to-teacher ratio. But what does co-teaching look like? How does it work? How do you know when you're doing it right? Here's a book that answers these questions and conveys what's critical to a co-teaching program, such as:

  • Five effective models of co-teaching.

  • Six methods for teaming up co-teachers.

  • Seven ways that co-teachers work together.

  • Ten effective teaching principles for the co-taught class.

  • Thirteen instructional strategies that help students learn in a co-teaching environment.

Authentic classroom and school examples throughout the book help you learn about the components of co-teaching and solve day-to-day challenges inherent to co-teaching, including:


  • How to address the range of special needs in a co-taught class.

  • What administrators do to set up and support co-teaching.

  • How to address the concerns of parents and students in co-teaching situations.

Whether you need to get the basics of co-teaching or want to stretch your knowledge of co-teaching into more advanced applications, Teaching in Tandem provides knowledge and tools that you need to create effective partnerships and powerful learning environments.
