SUBJECT: Collaborative Teaching and Planning Trainings for 2018-19
Collaboration between general education and special education teachers is essential for successfully including students with disabilities in general education classrooms. The Collaborative Teaching and Planning training is now taking the place of the previously offered Co-Teach/Team Teach training. This training is required by the state for both co-teaching and support facilitation (push-in) for core subjects when the ESE teacher is going into the General Education class. The training is only required one time. We have scheduled the following trainings on ProGOE for the 2018-2019 school year.
Teachers do not require any type of the Collaborative Teaching and Planning training if SLPs, OTs, PTs or any other therapists are the only ones coming into the classroom for therapy.
Collaborative Teaching and Planning is only required when an ESE teacher is going into a general education classroom and providing services. In this scenario, both teachers require the training.
The two teachers working together should ideally attend the training together. Substitute funding will be available.
All classes are held at ESF, Pod 4, Room 402N, from 8:00-3:30. If you have any questions, please contact Bill Pearlman, FDLRS Resource Teacher for Inclusion at 633-1000, ext. 560. Thank you!
