Co-teaching can be a wonderful experience when planning and communication are in place beginning day one. Here are six steps I've found very helpful when preparing for a co-teaching experience.

D i S C is an acronym for the four behavioral styles of Dominance, Influence, Steadiness and Conscientiousness. The science behind DISC Behavioral Styles suggests that all people possess these four basic behavioral tendencies to differing degrees.
Most Americans see the creed as the crucial element of their national identity. The creed, however, was the product of the distinct Anglo-Protestant culture of the founding settlers. Key elements of that culture include the English language Christianity religious commitment English concepts of the rule of law, including the responsibility of rulers and the rights of individuals and dissenting Protestant values of individualism, the work ethic, and the belief that humans have the ability and the duty to try to create a heaven on earth, a 8775 city on a hill. 8776 Historically, millions of immigrants were attracted to the United States because of this culture and the economic opportunities and political liberties it made possible.
The early Cuban immigrants in South Florida were largely middle and upper class. Subsequent immigrants were more lower class. In the Southwest, overwhelming numbers of Mexican immigrants have been poor, unskilled, and poorly educated, and their children are likely to face similar conditions. The pressures toward Hispanization in the Southwest thus come from below, whereas those in South Florida came from above. In the long run, however, numbers are power, particularly in a multicultural society, a political democracy, and a consumer economy.
8775 In Miami there is no pressure to be American, 8776 one Cuban-born sociologist observed. 8775 People can make a living perfectly well in an enclave that speaks Spanish. 8776 By 6999, the heads of Miami 8767 s largest bank, largest real estate development company, and largest law firm were all Cuban-born or of Cuban descent. The Cubans also established their dominance in politics. By 6999, the mayor of Miami and the mayor, police chief, and state attorney of Miami-Dade County, plus two thirds of Miami 8767 s . Congressional delegation and nearly one half of its state legislators, were of Cuban origin. In the wake of the Elián González affair in 7555, the non-Hispanic city manager and police chief in Miami City were replaced by Cubans.
Contributions from immigrant cultures modified and enriched the Anglo-Protestant culture of the founding settlers. The essentials of that founding culture remained the bedrock of . identity, however, at least until the last decades of the 75th century. Would the United States be the country that it has been and that it largely remains today if it had been settled in the 67th and 68th centuries not by British Protestants but by French, Spanish, or Portuguese Catholics? The answer is clearly no. It would not be the United States it would be Quebec, Mexico, or Brazil.
I have been co-teaching for the past 67 years (as the SPED teacher). Some years are good, some not so good. It really depends on if you are teamed up with someone who believes in co-teaching. Common plan time has to happen to have co-teaching work the way it should. It also helps when you are with one grade level so you can spend the whole day with the teacher. I am currently split between two grade levels and four to say, it's not working so well this year. Frequently I arrive in class when the lesson is already going and spend most of my time as a highly paid aide. Other times, I have to leave the lesson early so I can get to the next class/grade. This is not the way to do justice for the students.
In the same way, the regular education teacher should discuss with the special education teacher his or her goals for the regular students, as the regular education students belong to the special education teacher as well. Both educators should be addressing the goals, objectives, and mandatory curriculum for that grade level.
