3 Your Thoughts (January, 2010) The way I would like to collaborate with general/special education teachers to provide math instruction is…. 85% mentioned wanting to have lesson specific co-planning 15% prefer to have collaboration on strategic plans and independently develop and implement lesson plans and instruction 4/30/2015copyright All Rights Reserved. 3

11 Examples The resource teacher and I will plan, use and evaluate the effectiveness of supports for students who are struggling with the language of geometry. These will be used in pull out supplementary sessions and in the general education classroom Mr. Parker (sixth grade teacher) and I will use alternative teaching, station teaching, and one teach, one support with during the fraction unit. 4/30/2015copyright All Rights Reserved. 11
