Abstract

Co-teaching is the fastest growing inclusion model in the United States. Yet, the effectiveness of this model from the student perspective is largely under researched. Over a six-week period of systematic implementation of co-teaching models, this study quantitatively compared student and teacher perceptions of the effectiveness of the five most commonly used co-teaching models (i.e., One Teach/One Assist, Station Teaching, Alternative Teaching, Parallel Teaching, and Team Teaching). Quantitative analyses demonstrated statistical interactions between student and teacher perceptions. These findings differ from previous research in that they focus primarily on student perceptions in order to gain a better understanding of the impacts of co-teaching on students.
