Collaborative Teaching

Classroom management and environment

Parallel Teaching

Two groups of students created with different teaching approaches

- interactive vs. tactile


Organizing the classroom based off the needs of the students

Addressing the needs of different types of learners and reducing behavioral issues by creating engaged learners


Setting up classroom for more personalized learning

Station Teaching

Teachers divide the instructional content into two or more segments and present the content at separate learning stations.


Allows for independence of students to work on their own but also allows for teachers to work in different content areas to tend to the needs of students.


Since there are smaller groups, there is a sense of community by having students collaborate on their work.


Allows students to have a smaller classroom feeling by having small groups to work with.

One Teach, One Assist

Both teachers are present during instruction-- one takes the lead, while the other observes and assists students while also collecting data to find out more about students.


Data that the co-teacher collects serves as an informal assessment to create better groupings by readiness and skill.


Co-teacher prevents distractions while taking care of small-scale problems while the other teacher is able to continue out the lesson.
