How does the use of co-teaching strategies affect 2nd graders’ reading achievement, engagement and enjoyment?
The learners in our Lower School classrooms have a wide range of literacy development needs. We are interested in co-teaching models, which use a push-in approach, and promote active collaboration between the learning support specialist and classroom teachers. Our students need us to find ways that are both inclusive and effective. We are exploring coteaching as a strategy for enhancing reading achievement, while also strengthening our classroom community and instilling a love of reading.
