Join SERC for the following sessions with Dr. Marilyn Friend, an international leader in the field of Co-Teaching!
Monday, October 2, 2017
As an increasing number of schools implement co-teaching, the need for examining the roles and responsibilities of both teachers in the co-taught class has become critical to the success of this service delivery option. By varying the structure of the co-taught class based on the content and student need, co-teaching can be effective in helping achieve desired outcomes for each student. The delivery of specially designed instruction (SDI) within these varied co-teaching structures is essential to improving outcomes for students with disabilities in co-taught classes.
In this session, Marilyn Friend, an international presenter and leader in the field of co-teaching, will address its essential components and share recent research and her expertise. Opportunities will be included for participants to reflect on their experiences and consider practical strategies and solutions for enhancing their practice.
Audience: K-Grade 12: General and Special Education Teachers and Administrators, EL Teachers, Speech and Language Pathologists, and Reading or Math Consultant/Teachers
Presenter: Dr. Marilyn Friend, Author, Consultant and Professional Developer
