Team Teaching

Co-Teach (refers to a philosophy embracing the notion that all students should be welcomed members of a learning community, that all students are part of their classrooms even if their abilities differ)*Marshall ISD agrees with this philosophy.

Teachers being responsible for ensuring that all students meet the higher standards implemented by school reform. Students with disabilities and other special needs generally are expected to achieve the same success as other learners, and so there is an increased emphasis on educating them in general education settings (referred to as Inclusion).All educators are finding that an increasing number of students come to school with a variety of problems that make them learners at-risk (Cook & Friend, 2004). At Marshall ISD we agree to meet these diverse goals through co-teaching.
