Why Co-Teaching? Co-teaching provides an excellent experience for interns, Clinical Teachers, and P-12 Students. Interns Deeper understanding of curriculum through co-planning Increased confidence sooner during internship Improved classroom management skills Increased teaching time More opportunities to ask questions Clinical Teachers Time to provide consistent mentoring of interns Host interns without giving up their classroom Able to reach more students through small group work Better relationship with their intern Students Enhanced quality of learning for P- 12 students Receive more individual attention through work in smaller groups Get questions answered faster and work back sooner Better behavior/fewer disruptions

Common Concerns During Internship ConcernDuring Senior I Beginning Senior II End of Senior II Classroom Management Relationship with CT Demands of Senior I Performance Time Management Planning Lessons Personal Issues Electronic Portfolios Relationship with colleagues Working with parents Teaching a different subject/grade
Strategies Chart Example The 7 Strategies Codes for Content Area Degree of Co-T Effectiveness Weekly Dates
Full Day Teaching Requirements Co-Teaching interns are required to teach a minimum of 10 full days 5 of the 10 days must be solo You are responsible for all planning, teaching, and assessment on those days Up to 5 of the 10 days may be co-teaching You are responsible for planning and leading all instruction Your Clinical Teacher (and Co-Intern where applicable) can co-teach with you during these 5 days.
Co-Planning During Co-Planning the Intern and Clinical Teacher will Work Together to Determine: What content to teach What co-teaching strategies to use and when Who will lead different parts of the lesson How to assess student learning The materials and resources needed for the lesson During Co-Planning Interns are Expected to: Contribute ideas from the beginning of internship Be involved in deciding which strategies will work when and why Help decide which lessons to co-teach prior to and after Full Days and participate fully in co- teaching of those lessons
