Co-teaching and collaboration are terms that can be used interchangeably, and both refer to how professionals and others work together in a variety of situations. Co-teaching is specifically two teachers or professionals working together to deliver a lesson to a diverse set of students and is a teaching model that is gaining more and more popularity as it is researched more. This project reviews co-teaching history in literature as well as advantages, disadvantages and what teachers need in order to create an effective co-taught classroom. For the purpose of this project, informal information was gathered from special education teachers who have experience with co-teaching. This is summarized in the second portion of this project. The final part of this project gives tips for teachers that are new to co-teaching. These tips were created with the prior literature review and teacher input in mind.
