So, there are two teachers in your classroom. How is a typical class run? One teaches and the other models on the board? One teaches and the other circulates to assist with class management and content as needed? Co-Teaching can take on multiple forms. Take a look at the document below. You may want to meet with your co-teacher to discuss the various roles, see who feels comfortable with what, and what would best serve the students.
