Co-teaching in first grade: an effective method for lower achieving students
The research question addressed in this capstone is: Can special education students and at risk students receive proficiency on 80% of the Common Core State Standards for Mathematics using co-teaching? To answer this question the author analyzed students' assessments on the Common Core Math Standards and looked for growth to determine if these students were successful in a co-taught classroom. In this capstone the author describes co-teaching, through its history and various forms, as well as how to implement the model into a general classroom. The data used to analyze the question was collected between two fist grade classrooms. The co-teaching team for these classrooms consisted of two general classroom teachers, a math specialist, and a special education teacher (the author's perspective).
