This training will present collaborative/co-teaching models while exploring partnerships between content area teachers and ESL specialists in a K–12 MTSS framework. The presentation will target joint planning, collaborative instruction, and assessment practices, including evidence of language use. As a result, the emergence of teacher leadership will reduce teacher isolation and prevent a disconnected or fragmented ELD program.


Participants will:

  • Identify various research-based collaborative/co-teaching models for English learners
  • Analyze collaborative practices of teacher partnerships within MTSS
  • Evaluate current collaborative efforts in case scenarios
  • Develop an action plan to increase collaborative practices in their school context
