Coordinating for Reading Instruction: General Education and Special Education Working Together


The purpose of this booklet is to provide strategies to help general and special education teachers, speech and language pathologists, school counselors, para-professionals, and administrators (e.g., principals, special education coordinators) plan for and implement co-teaching during reading instruction in classrooms where a variety of learners are represented, including students with disabilities.

The content in this booklet has been influenced by current research on co-teaching and inclusion, a yearlong sustained conversation with four co-teaching teams, and our experience from observations in over seventy co-teaching classrooms.
