Team teaching is where teachers share the responsibility of teaching a class together. Both teachers teach the same concept to the whole class. The teachers plan, teach, and assess their students together. When teachers are co-teaching it is important to develop a rapport with each other. "Students can sense tension as well as harmony within the learning environment. A positive relationship will help minimize misunderstandings and motivate you to resolve problems before they escalate" (Marston, n.d.).

Alternative teaching is when one teacher teaches a large group and the other teacher teaching a smaller group in which each group is working on a different task (Curry School of Education, n.d.). In a classroom, there may be some students that need a little extra help with a concept. In Alternative teaching, the general education teacher may take the large group and work on the concept as planned, where as, the special education teacher would work with the students that need the extra help at a slower pace.
One Teaching, One Assisting

One teaches, one observes is a teaching method that helps both teachers and the students. While the general education teach is teaching a concept, the special education teach can observe the students to possibly predict which students may need extra help. This method is effective for checking for understanding and to check for difficulties with the concept being taught.

Parallel teaching allows teachers to work in smaller groups and has the comfort level of working in separately teaching the same concepts using different methods and possibly reaching a larger range of learning styles (Parallel Teaching in the Co-Teaching Classroom, 2017).
Today we will discuss our new vocabulary words for this unit.
One teaches, one assists is a method where one teacher takes responsibility for teaching the concept and the other teacher assists students that might be having trouble understanding the concepts. This methods allow the general education teacher to teach a concept without interruption and the students to get help as needed to understand the concept. The co-teacher gives the students that are struggling the assistance they need while learning the concept.
Station teaching is where students are placed into small groups in the classroom. One station is ran by the teacher, one is ran by the co-teacher, and the other can be a station that is independent or ran by a Paraprofessional. This method allow the teacher to spend more time with students who may need more help on a concept. This strategy is good for both teachers and the students. The students get the assistance they need from both teachers and both teachers are on the same page as to which students need more support.
