The research question addressed in this study was, how are the components of effective co-teaching implemented in middle school content area classrooms in my district? It identifies what research has found to be the necessary components for implementing effective co-teaching. The author documents feedback from teachers in middle school co-teaching partnerships about how co-teaching is being implemented in this district. Findings suggest that this district has room for growth in using these components for effective co-teaching, with a focus on joint planning time, professional development opportunities, and administrative support. Implications for further research include how co-teaching differs across age and level of education, what kind of link exists between these components of effective co-teaching and the success of English Learners in the classroom, and what effective co-teaching professional development looks like.
