Are you new to co-teaching or have you been co-teaching and need the fundamentals for a successful co-teaching relationship, this is the workshop for you! The workshop will provide participants with an overview of co-teaching as well as practical detailed strategies for implementation. Participants will be presented with six specific approaches and guidelines for selecting the best approach in various classroom arrangements. Participants will leave with tools ready to plan for and implement co-teaching in their classroom. This workshop is designed for individuals as well as co-teaching pairs.

Driving Team Effectiveness
10/19/15 from 8:30a.m.-11:30a.m.

The African proverb “It takes a village to raise a child” parallels our modern day “It takes an effective team to fulfill a child’s potential”. This session will give you the tools to be an effective team member, as well as help you establish those core practices that make teams effective, efficient and dynamic. Join us individually or with your whole team and explore communication styles, decision making, keys of good conflict resolution, collaboration strategies, team parameters for successful meetings as well as tricks for “moving a meeting along!”. Come one or come all – we promise you will leave with more insight to help your team thrive and in turn, your students flourish!
