Tentative rosters have come out....it appears I've got 2 periods of co-teaching/inclusion next year. :crosseyed I will be in one Science and one Social Studies class for 7th grade. I am not...thrilled. Co-teaching is mostly fake at my school. Teachers follow the "teach/assist" model and get treated like aides. I am NOT an aide. My Principal asked me if I was okay. :lol: She said she really wanted to see legit co-teaching piloted at our school, and that she believed I'd be the best one to start it. (?!?!?) I will supposedly be supported with resources and common planning time. All that is great, but these teachers have NOT done this before...and they are not terribly open-minded to the idea. Any advice on easing the transition and/or making it work? I am nervous. Science will be okay....but the Social Studies teacher is totally burned out and old school. She just reads from the book every period. They want me to implement small group instruction with her.
