Does Co-Teaching Meet The Needs Of Most Special Education Students?
Co-teaching does not meet the needs of most special education students.
Some special education uses the same strategies with or without co-teaching. Which is the same ineffective method of telling the student they did it wrong then saying to do it again and/or showing themselves solving the problem for the student.
Students with more severe needs get little out of co-taught classes.
Co-teaching does not meet the needs of "most special education students." Special Education is not a homogeneous group. The needs of these students vary greatly. No single environment in the public school setting can meet all the needs of the majority of students with disabilities or without.
Research is limited in the area of student outcomes, but what research has been done has found no marked difference between co-taught, non-co taught and special education single teacher classrooms when it comes to standardized testing.
When special needs students are allowed to be taught in a separate classroom at a slower pace and with materials at their level, they are able to learn more of needed content.
Co-education reduces prejudice against special education students by placing them in the same classroom environment as all the other students, without heavily stigmatising the child who has difficulty with the material.
Co-teaching creates a less-fractured educational experience for special needs children, by ensuring they are able to receive additional assistance alongside their typical education, without having to leave the classroom.
When it is done right, co-teaching can be very effective.
Even when the student is not able to get a lot out of the instruction, they are learning valuable social skills.
