Pam and I have jumped in to this experience wholeheartedly using a predominantly 'organic' approach. Having a trusting and cooperative professional relationship is really the core of our approach thus far. So far, Pam and I have co-planned, shared philosophical and technical teaching ideas. Moving forward our goal is to spend more time 'structuring' our co-teaching time with student achievement in mind.
These are a few examples of what you would see if you wandered into Pam's class during our co-teaching time:
- Readiness Level Small Group Instruction
- Team Teaching (Pam and I teaching the same concept together.)
- Examples of different approaches (Pam teaching examples of how to add fractions followed by a demonstration of manipulatives from me)
We are in our fledgling phase of this process and I hope to add more ideas to this blog as we learn together.
