Team Teaching

  • Using the team teaching method, both certified instructors are delivering the instruction at the same time to the students.  The instruction is delivered in a similar way, while each individual is addressing the learning styles and individual needs of all of the students in the classroom.

    The main goal and purpose of team teaching is to share the role of the lead teacher.  Each person delivers instruction and each person provides student support.
