Congratulations! You are going to be working in a co-taught classroom! What does that mean? What does that look like? How does blended or distance learning impact my co-teaching strategies? In this 3 part virtual mini-series, general and special education teachers will work together to create the foundation for an integrated classroom. Using the work of Marilyn Friend, participants will develop a common vocabulary and understanding centered around key elements of a successful co-teaching relationship. Topics include the roles and responsibilities of each educator, co-teaching structures, communication, collaborative planning, high leverage instructional practices and tips for including students with a variety of needs in a virtual classroom. The mid-year refresher will be subdivided into two sections allowing elementary and secondary teams to meet separately and address their unique needs and challenges. Participants are encouraged to attend with their co-teaching partner so that classroom policies, procedures, and expectations can be developed together.

This three-day mini series will take place on:
- September 24, 2020

- October 27, 2020

- January 12, 2021 (Elementary Teachers)
