Co-Teaching in Teacher Education
This volume examines teacher preparation programs that have successfully used a co-teaching model to improve the clinical experience for teacher candidates and to instill a disposition for equitable practice. Co-teaching in K?12 classrooms is a well-established practice, especially in inclusive settings, but it is far less common in teacher education programs. Blending research and practitioner voices, this book presents co-teaching as a viable and valuable framework that provides support for teacher candidates, allowing them to grow and learn through reciprocal relationships. Offering their experiences and perspectives, chapter authors share promising practices for centering equity in co-teaching situations. Co-Teaching in Teacher Education challenges teacher preparation programs to prepare educators to work together to support all students in today?s diverse classrooms.
