Co-Teaching: Is the co-teaching model the most effective strategy for students?

Michelle Sokoloski

The purpose of this study is to identify whether co-teaching is the most effective strategy for teaching students. Participants of this study will consist of male and female, 5th grade math students of varying races and socio economic status’ in rural Minnesota. The participants consist of English Language Learners, those that are part of the free and reduced meal program, and other students in 5thgrade. This study will follow approximately 20% of the grade and track their progress over the course of four months using the AIMSWeb Computation test. The study aims to determine whether it is better to have the students in the classroom with another educator or whether is it better for students to be taken out for more individualized instruction with another educator. This study will look at these two intervention strategies more closely.
