This study was done in order to learn more about implementing an ESL co-teaching program in an elementary setting. The purpose was to identify why a school might choose to implement an ESL co-teaching program, what characteristics are common among effective programs, and how the attitudes of teachers and administrators involved may affect the implementation. Research on effective ESL instruction and collaborative and co-teaching program models was highlighted. Teachers and administrators from three different elementary ESL co-teaching programs were interviewed and a case study of each program was presented. Information from the preliminary research and the interviews helped to identify key characteristics of successful ESL co-teaching programs.
